Henzel, Steffen; Hülsewig, Oliver und Mayer, Eric (2009): The price puzzle revisited: Can the cost channel explain a rise in inflation after a monetary policy shock? In: Journal of Macroeconomics, Vol. 31, Nr. 2: S. 268-289

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.
