''Financial conditions and slow recoveries''
We present an RBC model with a collateral constraint whose tightness is randomly disturbed by a financial shock and evidence that such shock has become more persistent since 1980s. We show that this can be an important contributor to the recent slow recoveries, and a key mechanism may have to do with just-in-time-uses of labor and capital services in the face of continued tight credit conditions during the recoveries. Our econometric estimates of a New Keynesian model, which features various structural shocks and frictions, indicate that financial shocks can play a dominant role in accounting for the recent slow recoveries.
