  • Endogenous price flexibility and optimal monetary policy 

    Senay, Ozge; Sutherland, Alan (2010-11) - Working or discussion paper
    Much of the literature on optimal monetary policy uses models in which the degree of nominal price flexibility is exogenous. There are, however, good reasons to suppose that the degree of price flexibility adjusts endogenously ...
