In this paper we will study the relation between real wage rigidity and nominal price and wage rigidities. We formulate a generalized price-setting framework that
incorporates staggered contracts of multiple durations and that enables us to directly identify the influences of nominal vs. real rigidities. We also find that new contracts exhibit very low sensitivity to marginal cost, corresponding to a relatively high degree of real rigidity. For instance, in models focused on labor contracts, wages are regarded as an „insurance” provided by the employer to the workers, while in efficiency wage models, wages are
determinants of labor productivity. Such models have the ability to account for unemployment, but they are not able to explain the failure of the classical dichotomy.
