Nominal Rigidities, News-Driven Business Cycles, and Monetary Policy

A news-driven business cycle is a positive comovement in consumption, labor, investment, and output caused by positive news about the future. Standard real business cycle models do not generate it. In this paper, we find that a used market friction – i.e., sticky prices – can be a source of news-driven business cycles from news about future technology growth, technology level, and expansionary monetary policy shocks. The key mechanism is the countercyclical movements of markups through nominal rigidities.

Keywords: news-driven business cycles; nominal rigidities; sticky prices
