Estimates of the Sticky-Information Phillips Curve for the United States
Mankiw and Reis (2002) have proposed a 'sticky-information'-based Phillips curve (SIPC) to address some of the concerns with the 'sticky-price'-based new Keynesian Phillips curve. In this paper, we present a methodology to empirically implement the SIPC and estimate its key structural parameter-the degree of information stickiness-for the United States. Using this methodology, we estimate average durations of information stickiness that range from three quarters (on the low side) to over seven quarters (on the high side).
