本期主题:Rational Inattention, Financial Constraint and

Monetary Non-neutrality    

摘要:

This paper explores the interaction between financial friction and information friction when firms set prices under rational inattention. Facing both nominal aggregate demand shock and idiosyncratic productivity shock, firms with binding financial constraint pay weakly more attention to aggregate shock than unconstrained firms due to strategic complementarity in their pricing decision. Using recent survey data, I find new cross-sectional facts that are consistent with the model\'s predictions regarding firm\'s attention to different macroeconomic variables. Though, constrained firms have advantageous attention level towards aggregate condition, their price response to monetary shock is not necessarily faster than unconstrained firms, due to the presence of real rigidity. Generally, monetary non-neutrality is decreasing with the fraction of constrained firms. However, if aggregate volatility is sufficiently large, monetary non-neutrality in the short run can be amplified by the fraction of constrained firms. I provide quantitative calibration disciplined by recent survey data to show the non-neutrality of money under both financial friction and information friction.
