In this paper, the economic resilience that shows the degree and ability of the economy in dealing with monetary and currency shocks is analyzed using a standard Keynesian dynamic equilibrium standard model of Keynesian. The data used in this article are fixed prices in 2011 and annually for the period of 1966-2016, taken from the Central Bank of the Islamic Republic of Iran. The results indicate that the reaction of inflation to expansionary monetary policy shocks depends on the amount of adhesion parameter, and production in the economy will increase with increasing price sticking parameter. Given the relative risk aversion ratio, consumption will decrease in response to monetary shocks.
