10. In the expectations-augmented Phillips curve, π = π e – 3( u u ). If π = 0.03 when π e = 0.06 and u = 0.06, then u = (a) 0.02. (b) 0.03. (c) 0.04. (d) 0.05. Answer: D Level of difficulty: 2 Section: 12.1 11. In the expectations-augmented Phillips curve, π = π e – 3( u – 0.06). When π = 0.06 and π e = 0.03, the unemployment rate is 12. The Phillips curve is the relation between inflation and unemployment that holds for a given natural rate of unemployment and a 13. Suppose most people had anticipated that inflation would be 3% in the coming year because the Fed would increase the money supply by 3%. Instead, the Fed increases the money supply by 5%. In the short run, this would cause actual output to be _____ full-employment output and prices to increase by _____ 3%.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
