Imperfectly-Credible Disinflation of Small Inflations
AbstractIn this paper we study and quantify the eÂ¤ects of a disinflationary policy on output and welfare. Our focus is the policy question of the optimal response to low inflation.The analysis takes place in the context of a DSGE model with sticky prices, time varying velocity and imperfect credibility. The nonlinear solution method reveals that early output losses may be more pronounced and more prolonged than previously suggested in the literature, and there may be insufficient compensation from a subsequent higher steady state to justify taking any disinflationary policy action in some cases.
