We extend the standard set of identified shocks to include unexpected changes in commodity prices. Our main result is that commodity price shocks are a very important driving force of macroeconomic fluctuations, second only to investment-specific technology shocks. In particular, we find that commodity price shocks explain a large share of cyclical movements in inflation. Neutral technology shocks and monetary policy shocks seem less relevant at business cycle frequencies. The impulse response dynamics provide support for medium-scale DSGE models, but not for strong price rigidities.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Gubler, Matthias</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>deposit-license</dc:rights> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-09-08T11:21:10Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Hertweck, Matthias Sebastian</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Hertweck, Matthias Sebastian</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://nbn-resolving.org/urn:nbn:de:bsz:352-20140905103605204-4002607-1"/> <dcterms:title>Commodity Price Shocks and the Business Cycle: Structural Evidence for the U.S.</dcterms:title> <dcterms:issued>2011</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
