Monopolistic competition, sticky prices, and the minimal mark-up in steady state
(2007) Documento de trabajo / Lan gaiak,
This note reports the rate of inflation that minimizes the mark-up of prices over marginal costs in the steady-state solution of a monopolistic competition model with either Taylor (1980) or Calvo (1983) pricing. The minimal ...
