Accounting for Heterogeneity

Abstract : 10 years ago, Chari, Kehoe and MaGrattan (2007) proposed a framework to guide business cycle research.  They measured the importance of distortions ("wedges") between macroeconomic data and what was implied by a benchmark neoclassical growth model and used these wedges to evaluate models of the business cycle. In this paper, we extend CKM to allow for distortions at the micro level and use this framework to understand and measure the importance of heterogeneity over the business cycle.
