[Roland Benabou; Jerzy Konieczny; National Bureau of Economic Research.] -- We analyze the effect of inflation on the average output of monopolistic firms facing a small fixed cost of changing nominal prices.

The output-inflation trade-off is investigated in a rational expectations equilibrium economy in which costly price setting makes it inefficient for agents to vary their prices at every instant. It is shown that "sticky prices" are not some exogenous source of output fluctuation but result from the monetary policy process.

The direct relationship between oil and inflation was evident in the s when the cost of oil rose from a nominal price of $3 before the oil .
Note that umc/P is the imported materials cost as a share of the price of a unit of output, while ulc/P is the wage cost as a share of the price of a unit of output. For example, suppose the price per unit is $5, imported materials cost $1 per unit and labour costs $ per unit. Further, inflationary situation may be associated with the fall in output, particularly if inflation is of the cost-push variety. Thus, there is no strict relationship between prices and output. An increase in aggregate demand will increase both prices and output, but a supply shock will raise prices and lower output. Authors James Bullard and Steven Russell, for example, suggest approximately a 1 percent output loss for each 1 percent increase in inflation above price stability.3 Martin Feldstein has examined how interactions between inflation and the tax system discourage saving while increasing housing demand.4Author: Richard G. Anderson. This volume presents the latest thoughts of a brilliant group of young economists on one of the most persistent economic problems facing the United States and the world, inflation. Rather than attempting an encyclopedic effort or offering specific policy recommendations, the contributors have emphasized the diagnosis of problems and the description of events that economists Reviews: 1.
