A New Phillips curve for Spain
In: Empirical studies of structural changes and inflation
In this paper we provide evidence on the fit of the New Phillips Curve (NPC) for Spain over the most recent disinflationary period (1980-1998). Some of the findings can be summarized as follows: (a) the NPC fits the data well; (b) yet, the backward looking component of inflation is important; (c) the degree of price stickiness implied by the estimates is plausible; (d) the use of independent information about prices on imported intermediate goods (which is influenced by the exchange rate) affects the measure of the firm's marginal costs and so inflation dynamics; and finally, (e) labor market frictions, as manifested in the behavior of the wage markup, appear to have also played a key role in shaping the behavior of marginal costs.
