1 He plotted the unemployment rate against the inﬂation rate for 100 years of UK data and showed that high inﬂation was associated with low unemployment and vice versa. This plot became known as the Phillips curve. During the 1960s the Phillips curve became the subject of an enormous amount of economic analysis and discussion. The question, which was debated endlessly, was whether governments could choose where they wanted the economy to be on this curve. For example, could governments choose to accept a slightly higher level of inﬂation and thereby achieve lower unemployment?
In a severe recession the ﬁnancial system may have a serious problem with bad debts, which makes lenders extremely cautious. Often there is a major bankruptcy or ﬁnancial crisis. The inventory correction is in full ﬂow and, as long as it continues, will tend to keep the economy in recession. Unemployment rises quickly, which starts to put downward pressure on inﬂation though most of the beneﬁts are seen later. In the markets short-term interest rates drop during this phase, as do bond yields. Depending on how badly conﬁdence is affected stock markets may fall precipitously at ﬁrst in response to reports of company losses and bankruptcies, but then recover on the back of lower interest rates and hopes for economic recovery.
However, the old fundamental relationships between inﬂation, unemployment and growth still exist, just at lower inﬂation rates. In some ways the analysis of inﬂation and unemployment is another way of looking at the business cycle. During recessions, unemployment rises and inﬂation tends to fall, while during the boom unemployment falls and inﬂation rises. But it is worth analysing these two aspects in more detail both to understand the timing of the cycle and to look at the long-term trends in inﬂation that have played such a crucial role in determining investment returns since the early 1970s.
