Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Hello Ellery,

Clearly, this is a topic that has been explored during many eras in history. This issue was first explored in 1958 by A.W. Phillips and so today we call it the Phillips curve.  Now let's get down to the relationship between unemployment and inflation in the U.S. economy. The theory behind his idea is that as unemployment falls than employees can push for higher wages thus causing inflation.  There was also a time where a time where there was something called stagflation which is where both the employment rate and the economy were both stagnated and at a stand still. The key behind the whole idea is to try to balance the rate of unemployment and inflation.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Do you think the situation has changed any today with unemployment and inflation?  Has it gotten worse or better?
