Does welfare improve when firms have more information about the state of the economy and can better coordinate their production and pricing decisions? We address this question in a business-cycle model that highlights how informational frictions can be the source of both nominal and real rigidity. We then elaborate on how the answer to this question depends on each of these rigidities, on the sources of the business cycle, and on the conduct of monetary policy.
