Regulation, bank competitiveness, and episodes of missing money

John Duca reviews three episodes of "missing money," periods during which one of the monetary aggregates was unusually weak.

Duca further shows that increases in bank regulatory burden can create potential problems for analysts in using ...

The rise of goods-market competition and the fall of nominal wage contracting: endogenous wage contracting in a multisector economy

This paper shows how heterogeneity wage-setting and a link between nominal wage flexibility andg goods-market competition rise in a multisector economy that is affected by aggregate and sector-specific shocks. Aggregate volatility increases the variance of real contract wages, whereas sectoral volatility increase the relative variance of real Walrasian wages. Given this tradeoff, the prevalence of nominal wage contracting reflects both the relative volatility of aggregate versus sectoral disturbances and the overall degree of goods-market market competition. We find that these variables help ...
