This paper isolates the role of expectations on the producers' side. Positive shocks to expectations, which can be due to shocks to producers' private information, transient productivity shocks, or positive `surprise' monetary policy shocks, are shown to cause increases in employment, output, and prices, but be in ationary only on impact and deflationary thereafter. A Friedman-rule emerges as the optimal monetary policy in this framework; however, a policy as aggressive on in ation as possible is a second-best policy.
