Principles of Macroeconomics (MindTap Course List), Chapter 22, Problem 1QR

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. There is a negative relationship between inflation and unemployment. When the inflation rate is high, then the unemployment rate will be less. The Fed moves the economy from one point on this curve to another by changing the money supply. The increasing money supply leads to an increase in the inflation rate in the economy. An increase in the inflation reduces the unemployment rate.
