Abstract

In this paper, we examine parameter identi�cation in the hybrid speci�cation of the New Keynesian Phillips Curve proposed by Gali and Gertler (1999). We employ recently developed moment-conditions inference procedures, which provide a more e¢ cient and reliable econometric framework for the analysis of the NKPC. In particular, we address the issue of parameter identi�cation, obtaining robust con�dence sets for the model�s parameters. Our results cast serious doubts on the empirical validity of the NKPC.
