Durable goods and sticky prices: Industry-level evidence
We employ industry data to examine price stickiness of durables versus non-durables to evaluate Barsky et al. (2007) proposal that stickiness of durables’ prices influences aggregate dynamics. Policy impacts from impulse responses accord with sticky-price frameworks even though non-durables’ prices are relatively flexible.
