The Short-Run Tradeoff between Inflation and Unemployment
Copyright ? 2004 South-Western

Unemployment and Inflation
? The natural rate of unemployment depe

nds on various features of the labor market. ? Examples include minimum-wage laws, the market power of unions, the role of efficiency wages, and the effectiveness of job search. ? The inflation rate depends primarily on growth in the quantity of money, controlled by the Fed.

Unemployment and Inflation
? Society faces a short-run tradeoff between unemployment and inflation. ? If policymakers expand aggregate demand, they can lower unemployment, but only at the cost of higher inflation.
? If they contract aggregate demand, they can lower inflation, but at the cost of temporarily higher unemployment.

The Long-Run Phillips Curve ? In the 1960s, Friedman and Phelps concluded that inflation and unemployment are unrelated in the long run.
? As a result, the long-run Phillips curve is vertical at the natural rate of unemployment. ? Monetary policy could be effective in the short run but not in the long run.

Expectations and the SRPC ? Expected inflation measures how much people expect the overall price level to change.

Copyright ? 2004 South-Western

Expectations and the SRPC ? In the long run, expected inflation adjusts to changes in actual inflation. ? The Fed’s ability to create unexpected inflation exists only in the short run.
? Once people anticipate inflation, the only way to get unemployment below the natural rate is for actual inflation to be above the anticipated rate.
