Aggregate Supply Curve Aggregate Demand
1,369 wordsIn this model, economists pursue the sluggish adjustment of nominal wages path to explain why it is that the short-run aggregate supply curve is upward sloping. For sticky nominal wages, an increase in the price level lowers the real wage therefore making labor cheaper for firms. Cheaper labor means that firms will hire more labor, and the increased labor will in turn produce more output. The time period where the nominal wage cannot adjust to the changes in price level and output signifies the ...

Economic Growth Low Inflation
899 wordsGoals of monetary policy are to promote maximum employment, inflation (stabilizing prices), and economic growth. If economists believe its possible to achieve all the goals at once, the goals are inconsistent. There are limitations to monetary policy. The term maximum employment means that we should try to hold the unemployment rate as low as possible without pushing it below what economists call the natural rate or the full- employment rate. Pushing unemployment below that level would cause inf...

Natural Rate Of Unemployment Phillips Curve
1,061 wordsThe governments of most developed economies now appear to be primarily concerned with inflation and how to keep it down as opposed to maintaining full employment or restricting the money supply. However, unlike in other areas of the economy, the actions the government can take to control inflation are quite limited.
