Abstract: We derive and estimate a small-scale DSGE model augmented with price and wage adjustment governed by a time-dependent mechanisms. Byusing positively sloping hazard functions, we micro-found price and wage inflation intrinsic persistence, as we derive price and wage Phillips curves characterized by both forward and backward terms for inflation. Our estimation confirms upward-sloping hazard functions. Finally, we compare the empirical performance of our model to several popular alternatives based on di¤erent price and wage adjustment mechanisms, including Calvo pricing. By comparing log-marginal likelihoods of di¤erent estimations, we find that our model clearly outperforms these alternatives.
