The authors? model, embodying moderate amounts of nominal rigidities, accounts for the observed inertia in inflation and persistence in output. The key features of their model are those that prevent a sharp rise in marginal costs after an expansionary shock to monetary policy. Of these features, the most important are staggered wage contracts of average duration (three quarters) and variable capital utilization.
