So, it seems, there is a trade off between inflation and unemployment rates. Samuelson & Solow (1960): The same type of relation was confirmed for the US data. Friedman & Phelps (1968): These two economists opposed this idea. They believed the unemployment rate, is a function of labor and goods markets structures, and independent from the inflation rate, which is a function of money supply. There should not be any trade off between these two. But the evidence (Phillips Curve) was showing otherwise.
