Abstract:Mankiw and Reis propose the Sticky Information Phillips Curve (SIPC) as an alternative to the standard New Keynesian Phillips Curve to address empirical shortcomings in the latter. A SIPC for South Africa is estimated, and the authors find estimates of information updating probability between 0.69 and 0.81, somewhat higher than suggested by methods using micro-evidence. Because the estimation requires data on expectations of current period inflation and output gap conditional on sequences of earlier period information sets, they provide a detailed analysis of the impact on our estimates of alternative proxies available in South Africa.
