Abstract

The postwar evidence suggests that unemployment is associated with the rate of change in the inflation rate, rather than (as proponents of the Phillips Curve would argue) with the inflation rate itself. A constant inflation rate corresponds to unemployment of roughly five per cent; at any lower level of unemployment, the inflation rate will increase without limit.
