On the risk of long-run deflation

Economics Letters

Abstract: I determine expected long-run inflation in a two-state New Keynesian model driven by natural interest-rate uncertainty. Monetary policy switches between discretion in “normal times” and zero-lower-bound episodes when it is passive. Long-run U.S. inflation ranges from −1.8% to +1.2% p.a.

Keywords: Zero lower bound; Long-run inflation; Monetary policy
