Evidences from Consumer Price Index for Industrial Workers

Micro-level Price Setting Behaviour in India

In the contemporary literature of macroeconomics, the mainstream frameworks for policy evaluation have recognised the significance of price rigidities, emerging from the micro-level pricing behaviour of firms, to explain the short- and medium-run effects of monetary policy interventions.
