Macroeconomic Price and Quantity Responses with Heterogeneous Product Markets
How do heterogeneous types of product market competition affect the macroeconomic properties of the economy? The author considers an economy with three different types of product market: oligopolistic, competitive, and fix-price. He examines the effect of an increase in the money supply and how it is split between changes in price and quantity. The theme of the paper is that there is a whole range of possible macroeconomic behavior from a Keynesian pure-output response to a classical pure-price response. What matters is (1) the relative sizes of sectors and (2) the nature of preferences and technology. Copyright 1994 by Royal Economic Society.
