Price Information in an Open Economy: Theory and Evidence for the United Kingdom, 1951-1991
Price formation is an increasingly important part of modern macroeconomics. However, the empirical literature on price-setting is diverse and confused. This paper uses cointegration techniques to test theories of price-setting on U.K. aggregate data for 1951-91. The author finds: (1) domestic prices are determined by both domestic costs and world prices and (2) at the macroeconomic level, prices are related to marginal cost rather than average or normal cost.
