|Title:||Inflation targets, credibility, and persistence in a simple sticky-price framework||Authors:||Whelan, Karl

We derive a closed-form solution for the model, and analyze its properties under various parameter values. The model is used to explore topics relating to the effects of disinflationary monetary policies and inflation persistence. In particular, we employ the model to illustrate and assess the critique that standard sticky-price models generate counterfactual predictions for the effects of monetary policy.||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||Federal Reserve||Keywords:||Inflation; Phillips curve||Subject LCSH:||Inflation (Finance)
