This paper reexamines the macroeconomic effects of wage indexation in an open economy under alternative exchange rate regimes. The main finding is that, once the lags in actual indexation rules are considered, wage indexation affects output behavior substantially less than posited in the previous academic literature. This result implies that the academic view that wage indexation makes a.

The integration of market economies is one of the most remarkable features of international economics, which has important implications for macroeconomic performance in open economies.

Wage Indexation and Inflation: Wage Indexation and Macroeconomic Stability. Indexing and Inflation. Contracts, Credibility, and Disinflation. Exchange Rate versus Money Targets in Disinflation. Indexation in the Capital Markets: The Demand for Index Bonds.

On the Nonexistence of Privately issued index Bonds in the U.S. Capital by: I. I ntroduction. Since the mid s, there has been considerable research on the macroeconomic consequences of wage indexation.

Starting with two seminal papers by Gray () and Fischer (), the academic literature has studied the effects of wage indexing on the behavior of the economy in response to alternative types of shocks, the effects of wage indexing on the Wage-indexation and macro-economic stability book of disinflation.

The paper develops a simple analytical framework in which the shortrun affects of wage indexation on the dynamic stability of inflation can be analyzed. It consists of a unlonized labor market faced by a competitive demand.

Without indexation, the wage contract is based upon the union's prediction of the price level during the period of the Cited by: 2. Fischer, Stanley, "Wage indexation and macroeconomics stability," Carnegie-Rochester Conference Series on Public Policy, Elsevier, vol.

There are at least two prevalent views on the effects of wage indexation on economic stability, by which is meant the variability of output and prices. Jadresic, Esteban, Wage Indexation and Macroeconomic Stability: The Gray-Fischer Theorem Revisited (November ).

IMF Working Paper, Vol., pp. Since the seminal papers by Gray () and Fischer () were published, the major theorem of the wage indexation literature has been that indexing wages stabilizes output when shocks are nominal and destabilizes output when shocks are real. This paper reexamines the validity of this proposition taking into account the lags in actual indexation practices in an economy similar to that.

We estimate a New Keynesian wage Phillips curve for a panel of 24 OECD countries and allow the degree of wage indexation to past inflation to vary according to structural characteristics. We find that the degree of wage indexation is significantly lower for countries with an inflation target.
