Research Discussion Paper – RDP 2013-11 Issues in Estimating New-Keynesian Phillips Curves in the Presence of Unknown Structural Change


The Discussion Paper series is intended to make the results of the current economic research within the Reserve Bank available to other economists. Its aim is to present preliminary results of research so as to encourage discussion and comment. Views expressed in this paper are those of the authors and not necessarily those of the Reserve Bank. Use of any results from this paper should clearly attribute the work to the authors and not to the Reserve Bank of Australia.

The contents of this publication shall not be reproduced, sold or distributed without the prior consent of the Reserve Bank of Australia.

We thank Adam Cagliarini, Alex Heath and Christopher Kent for useful suggestions. We also thank Sophocles Mavroeidis for comments on an earlier draft. Responsibility for any remaining errors rests with us. Much of this work was done when Mariano Kulish was an RBA employee.
