To determine

Phillips curve.

Explanation

Figure 1 shows the Phillips curve.

In Figure 1, the vertical axis measures the inflation rate and the horizontal axis measures the unemployment rate. The downward sloping curve is the Phillips curve. It shows the short-run tradeoff between inflation rate and unemployment. When the inflation rate is high, the unemployment rate will be less. There is a negative relationship between inflation and unemployment.

Use the model of aggregate demand and aggregate supply to show how policy can move the economy from a point on this curve with high inflation to a point with low inflation. It is explained with the help of a figure shown below.
