Abstract

In this study we propose to analyze the monetary policy of the Romanian central bank and to evaluate the inflation inertia and persistence. Thus, we estimate two DSGE models, a simple neokeynesian standard model built around a forward-looking component and in order to offer a more complex perspective we also estimated a DSGE model that captures the inflation inertia. The results show that the prices evolution reflects the difficulties of eliminating the inflation inertia. In Romania, the historic inflation evolution has a major impact on the way the inflation expectations are formed. Even if the inflation decreased at a moderate level, its persistence continues for a long period of time.
