Price setting in General Equilibrium: Alternative Specifications

Grégory de Walque (), Frank Smets and Raf Wouters ()

No 370, Computing in Economics and Finance 2005 from Society for Computational Economics

Abstract: This paper compares a number of alternative specifications for price setting in the context of the Smets-Wouters (2003) Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium model. We compare the Calvo model with a standard Taylor contracting model and show that by allowing for sector-specific capital the Taylor contracting model with relative short contract length is performing as well as the Calvo model
