Abstract

This note analyses the interaction between nominal wage stickiness and costly employment adjustment in a small closed-economy New Keynesian model with simple rule-based or optimal monetary policy. The results show 1 the costs of nominal and real rigidity to depend on the policy regime, 2 optimal policy to substantially contain the welfare loss, and 3 the absence of quantitatively important secondbest interaction, suggesting that reducing rigidity along one dimension alone does not risk reducing overall welfare.
