A Theory of Price Rigidity On Facebook, someone raised a discussion on the impact of technology on sticky prices. The reasoning is that new technology that increases the amount of information being considered by price-setting agents, and/or delivers the relevant information at a faster rate, will help reduce the amount of time it takes for.

These two volumes bring together a set of important essays that represent a "newKeynesian" perspective in economics today. This recent work shows how the Keynesian approach toeconomic fluctuations can be supported by rigorous microeconomic models of economic behavior. Theessays are grouped in seven parts that cover costly price adjustment, staggering of wages andprices, imperfect competition. Wage rigidities also have been identified as important determinants of the cyclical adjustment dynamics of output, as well as vacancies and unemployment that are difficult to rationalise with models with flexible wages.1 Despite the important consequences of .
