The second statement does not differ substantially from the conclusion reached by Gordon and by Eisner. A shock to the unemployment rate sets off some short-run oscillations of the rate of inflation, but they happen soon, they are over quickly, and their range is very narrow, at most a couple of tenths of a percentage point on either side. Once those fluctuations have damped themselves out, as they seem to do, the enduring response of the inflation rate is modest and sluggish. It does not get out of hand.
The model is constrained to have a NAIRU of 6 percent. The diagram traces the path of the cumulated change in the rate of inflation if the model is perturbed in the following way. It starts with a constant rate of inflation, at 6 percent unemployment. 1 Result of a simulation: Upper curve gives cumulative change of inflation rate from initial value; lower curve shows month-tomonth changes in simulated inflation rate. then retraces its steps back to 6 percent in the course of yet another year. The lower curve shows the month-to-month changes in the rate of inflation; the upper curve cumulates them from the beginning of the experiment.
Or, equivalently, one must view reduced output stability as the opportunity cost of improved inflation stability. In fact, as with any curved production possibilities frontier, the opportunity costs are increasing: Reductions in the size of business cycle fluctuations require ever-increasing amounts of inflation instability. As I will explain later, empirical evidence suggests that the opportunity costs are sharply increasing. The Theory How does one explain the existence of such a trade-off? The economy is always subject to shocks, including price shocks Page 40 such as a sharp, unanticipated increase in oil prices, and aggregate demand shocks, such as a shift in government purchases or change in demand for exports from abroad.
