A Possibility of Protracted Output Gaps in an Economy without Any Rigidity
The paper examines a new possibility of output gaps in an economy without any rigidity. The driving force behind the new possibility is non-cooperative behavior of consumers. The paper shows that there is a possibility that when a fundamental shock hits an economy this non- cooperative nature makes consumers deviate form the optimal path of the representative consumer, and thus agents do not jump consumption and proceed on the deviated transition path.
