Abstract

This paper presents an investigation of the relations between wage adjustment, competitiveness, and aggregate fluctuations in the United Kingdom. It uses a real business cycle model based on the distinction between internationally traded and nontraded goods. The traded goods sector is assumed a price taker, and the focus is on the supply side. The model can account quite well for fluctuations in competitiveness, output, wages, and the terms of trade. The results suggest output flexibility and wage-price rigidity, a combination that produces interesting patterns of macroeconomic adjustment, which parallel the predictions of more traditional Keynesian models.
