Are Wages Forward Looking?
AbstractThis paper presents a study of U.K. earnings over the period 1967-87 aimed at establishing whether wagesetters anticipate future movements in prices. Two models are proposed: the first where agents form rational predictions about future price movements and the second where they use simple rules-of-thumb based on past price movements. These two dynamic models, based on the same long-run equation, are compared, drawing on the methods of D. F. Hendry. Copyright 1994 by Royal Economic Society.
