Contracts and money

Boyan Jovanovic, Masako Ueda

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Why are contracts not fully indexed? In a setting in which fully indexed contracts are feasible, we find that when price-level data are gathered with delay, these contracts are not renegotiation-proof. The contracts that replace them entail a lower level of welfare for the parties to that contract. They also imply that real variables respond to nominal shocks.
