05. 3 shows the welfare level relative to steady state (as a percentage) in dependence on the parameters ψ and γ for this different situation. 3: Utility after a preference shock depending on monetary policy with r∗ > r. Contrary to the case described above, welfare-optimizing policy now requires 28 positive values for ψ and γ, although this would shift the economy further away from its steady state. The reason for this is the preference for variety of individuals. From their perspective, monetary policy should permit more firms to enter the market regardless of their relatively low productivity.

Unanticipated shocks are the source of economic fluctuations and therefore are the justification for an active monetary policy. The model is static. 1 Households It is assumed that the economy consists of a constant population of identical households normalized to one. These households own the total capital stock (denoted by K) and all technologies in the economy. 1) ω∈Ω where c(ω) describes consumption of a specific variety, and q is a common preference parameter. The budget constraint reads as ω∈Ω p(ω)c(ω)dω I, where I denotes the income of a household.

15 Because the definition for household income closes the model, the following proposition can be made. Proposition 1. For any given set of parameters [r > 0, f > 0, q > 0, K > 0, M0 > 0] and distribution G(ϕ) defined over the interval [0, ∞), the economy is characterized by a unique and stationary equilibrium. Proof. 1. Contrary to Melitz (2003), in equilibrium, the firm-level determinants (ϕ∗ , ϕ, ˜ p) are not independent of the size of the economy, which can be approximated by K. A higher capital stock enables more firms to stay in the market.
