Menu costs, (s,S) rule, imperfect information and the neutrality of money
A dynamic macroeconomic model of monopolistic competition and imperfect information with menu costs and (s,S) pricing rule is proposed, in the lines of Caballero and Engel . The model can be seen as an imperfect competition version of Lucas  with menu costs. The presence of informational imperfection destroys the neutrality result of Caplin and Spulber , and the effect of a monetary shock on output is shown to be an increasing function of the degree of strategic complementarity between firms.
