Minneapolis Fed Working Papers by V. V. Chari, Patrick J. Kehoe, and Ellen R. McGrattanNew Keynesian Models: Not Yet Useful for Policy Analysis2008-07-03T07:14:59ZIn the 1970s macroeconomists often disagreed bitterly. Macroeconomists have now largely converged on method, model design, and macroeconomic policy advice. The disagreements that remain all stem from the practical implementation of the methodology. Some macroeconomists think that New Keynesian models are on the verge of being useful for quarter-to-quarter quantitative policy advice. We do not. We argue that the shocks in these models are dubiously structural and show that many of the features of the model as well as the implications due to these features are inconsistent with microeconomic evidence. These arguments lead us to conclude that New Keynesian models are not yet useful for policy analysis.New Keynesian Models: Not Yet Useful for Policy AnalysisAbstracthttp://www.minneapolisfed.org/research/common/pub_detail.cfm?pb_autonum_id=1126Full texthttp://www.minneapolisfed.org/research/WP/WP664.pdfV.

Minneapolis Fed Working Papers by Patrick J. Kehoe and Virgiliu MidriganTemporary Price Changes and the Real Effects of Monetary Policy2008-05-07T18:46:00ZIn the data, a large fraction of price changes are temporary. We provide a simple menu cost model which explicitly includes a motive for temporary price changes. We show that this simple model can account for the main regularities concerning temporary and permanent price changes. We use the model as a benchmark to evaluate existing shortcuts that do not explicitly model temporary price changes. One shortcut is to take the temporary changes out of the data and fit a simple Calvo model to it. If we do so prices change only every 50 weeks and the Calvo model overestimates the real effects of monetary shocks by almost 70%. A second shortcut is to leave the temporary changes in the data. If we do so prices change every 3 weeks and the Calvo model produces only 1/9 of the real effects of money as in our benchmark. We show that a simple Calvo model can generate the same real effects as our benchmark model if we set parameters so that prices change every 17 weeks.Temporary Price Changes and the Real Effects of Monetary PolicyAbstracthttp://www.minneapolisfed.org/research/common/pub_detail.cfm?pb_autonum_id=1120Full texthttp://www.minneapolisfed.org/research/WP/WP661.pdfVirgiliu MidriganPatrick J.

Minneapolis Fed Working Papers by Andrew Atkeson, V. V. Chari, and Patrick J. KehoeSophisticated Monetary Policies2008-04-25T18:25:00ZSophisticated monetary policies can depend on the history of private actions and can differ on and off the equilibrium path. We show that such policies can uniquely implement any desired competitive outcome, even those in which along the equilibrium path interest rate policies violate the Taylor principle. We also show that the conventional restricted policies studied in the literature cannot uniquely support the best outcomes while sophisticated policies can. Finally, we show that sophisticated policies are robust to imperfect monitoring.Sophisticated Monetary PoliciesAbstracthttp://www.minneapolisfed.org/research/common/pub_detail.cfm?pb_autonum_id=1118Full texthttp://www.minneapolisfed.org/research/WP/WP659.pdfAndrew AtkesonV.

Minneapolis Fed Working Papers by Patrick J. Kehoe and Virgiliu MidriganSticky Prices and Sectoral Real Exchange Rates2007-10-24T07:14:59ZThe classic explanation for the persistence and volatility of real exchange rates is that they are the result of nominal shocks in an economy with sticky goods prices. A key implication of this explanation is that if goods have differing degrees of price stickiness then relatively more sticky goods tend to have relatively more persistent and volatile good-level real exchange rates. Using panel data, we find only modest support for these key implications. The predictions of the theory for persistence have some modest support: in the data, the stickier is the price of a good the more persistent is its real exchange rate, but the theory predicts much more variation in persistence than is in the data. The predictions of the theory for volatiity fare less well: in the data, the stickier is the price of a good the smaller is its conditional variance while in the theory the opposite holds. We show that allowing for pricing complementarities leads to a modest improvement in the theory¿s predictions for persistence but little improvement in the theory¿s predictions for conditional variances.Sticky Prices and Sectoral Real Exchange RatesAbstracthttp://www.minneapolisfed.org/research/common/pub_detail.cfm?pb_autonum_id=1102Full texthttp://www.minneapolisfed.org/research/WP/WP656.pdfVirgiliu MidriganPatrick J.

Minneapolis Fed Working Papers by Patrick J. Kehoe and Virgiliu MidriganSales and the Real Effects of Monetary Policy2007-04-23T12:17:59ZIn the data, a sizable fraction of price changes are temporary price reductions referred to as sales. Existing models include no role for sales. Hence, when confronted with data in which a large fraction of price changes are sales related, the models must either exclude sales from the data or leave them in and implicitly treat sales like any other price change. When sales are included, prices change frequently and standard sticky price models with this high frequency of price changes predict small effects from money shocks. If sales are excluded, prices change much less frequently and a standard sticky price model with this low frequency of price changes predict much larger effects of money shocks. This paper adds a motive for sales in a parsimonious extension of existing sticky price models. We show that the model can account for most of the patterns of sales in the data. Using our model as the data generating process, we evaluate the existing approaches and find that neither well approximates the real effects of money in our economy in which sales are explicitly modeled.Sales and the Real Effects of Monetary PolicyAbstracthttp://www.minneapolisfed.org/research/common/pub_detail.cfm?pb_autonum_id=1090Full texthttp://www.minneapolisfed.org/research/WP/WP652.pdfVirgiliu MidriganPatrick J.
