Deriving the wage-wage and price-price Phillips curves from a model with efficiency wages and imperfect information

  • Campbell III, Carl M.

Abstract

This study derives reduced-form equations for the wage-wage Phillips curve and the price-price Phillips curve from firms' optimizing behavior, under the assumptions that firms pay efficiency wages and that workers' expectations of average wages or prices are partly adaptive.
