Abstract

This paper presents an open economy model with tradeable and nontradeable sectors in which households cannot supply labour in both sectors at the same time. In this economy, the Frisch elasticity of labour supply is infinite. I analyse how the infinite labour supply elasticity interacts with the Producer Currency Pricing (PCP) and Local Currency Pricing (LCP) assumptions, and I find that it does not significantly alter the empirical performance of the model with respect to a broad range of statistics.
