Price Stickiness

Price Stickiness

Price stickiness is typically the result of menu costs or labour market frictions (through wages) and occurs when suppliers fail to adjust nominal prices quickly on the back of changing economic and production conditions, be that changes in the monetary stance, higher input costs, or changes in aggregate demand. This can lead to a short run equilibrium, which is sub-optimal and is different from the economy’s equilibrium.
