Despite its obvious relevance, price stabilisation with multiplicative errors has not received the attention it deserves. In this paper, the model developed in section 2 is used to assess the impact of complete price stabilisation on producer’s revenue and consumer’s expenditure. Using a theorem1 due to Turnovsky, some rather strong analytical results are presented in sections 4 and 5. In particular, it is shown that demand and supply elasticities acquire a strategic importance. The conclusions, together with the assumptions implicit in the treatment are presented in section 6.
