A Business Cycle Model with Sticky Pricing and Endogenous Capital


  • Ming Lin


In this paper, we will study some business cycle models with sticky pricing and endogenous and firm-specific capital. We also manage to incorporate capital utilization into the models. As revealed by the simulation results, the cyclical behaviors of our business cycle models are quite normal compared with the literature and those of the actual economy except the simulated correlations between inflation and output. Such simulation result is mainly because in symmetric equilibriums, money in our models turns out to be superneutral.
