Transitional and Steady-State Costs of Disinflation When Growth Is Endogenous
AbstractIn a monetary version of the Uzawa (1965)-Lucas (1988) model of endogenous growth, this paper illustrates how a credible policy of rapid disinflation can induce temporary declines in employment and output, with the former exhibiting a significant degree of persistence; however, these temporary declines in employment and output are not associated with any nominal rigidities in the economy, and therefore do not represent dead-weight losses that occur along the transition path, but are instead a part of an optimal response to the policy change. The measured welfare benefits of disinflation are seen to be higher when the transition path is taken into account. Copyright 1999 by The London School of Economics and Political Science
