      This paper discusses a rigorous empirical standard for monetary policy models. The motivation for this discussion is that, if one wishes to conduct welfare analysis, one must be reasonably confident that the model provides a good approximation to underlying consumer and firm behavior over the monetary policy . monetary policy, inflation and the business cycle. • RBC model: cannot even think about these issues! Real variables are completely separate from nominal variables (“monetary neutrality”, “classical dichotomy”). • Corollary: monetary policy has no effect on any real variables. • Sticky prices break “monetary .

For example, optimal monetary policy depends on the relative duration of wage and price contracts: the optimal rule induces greater variability in the more flexible nominal variable.

The welfare level under the optimal monetary policy rule provides a natural benchmark against which to measure the performance of alternative policy by: optimal monetary policy, developing the model-consistent objectives for policy, the notion of optimal commitment, and the instrument rules that can implement optimal policy.

The unconditional expectation of average household utility can be expressed in terms of the unconditional variances of the output gap, price inflation, and wage inflation.

Monetary policy cannot replicate the Pareto-optimal equilibrium that would occur under completely flexible wages and prices; that is, the model exhibits a tradeoff between stabilizing the output gap, price inflation. Optimal monetary policy in a model of overlapping price contracts.
