Price-setting behaviour, competition, and markup shocks in the new Keynesian model
Economics Letters , Volume 87 - Issue 3 p. 329- 335
This paper shows that firms' price-setting behaviour determines whether a higher level of competition among firms amplifies or dampens short-run inflationary pressures in the new Keynesian model. When strategic complementarity in pricing decisions prevails, the effect of markup shocks is relatively small.
