Henzel, Steffen; Hülsewig, Oliver; Mayer, Eric; Wollmershäuser, Timo (2007): The price puzzle revisited: can the cost channel explain a rise in inflation after a monetary policy shock? CESifo Working Paper, 2039
Full text not available from 'Open Access LMU'.


This paper explores whether the cost channel solves the price puzzle. We set-up a New Keynesian DSGE model and estimate it for the euro area by adopting a minimum distance approach. Our findings suggest that - under certain parameter restrictions which are not rejected by the data - the cost channel helps to generate an initial rise of inflation after a monetary contraction.
