Keynesianism on Economic Policies - Dictionary of Arguments

Mause I 57
Economic policy/Keynesianism: Keynesianism interprets the observed negative correlation between the unemployment rate and the rate of inflation in such a way that economic policy could buy low unemployment at the price of high inflation, on the theoretical basis of Keynes' stated downward rigidity of nominal wages: if real wages are too high and there is therefore unemployment, but a reduction in nominal wages is excluded, then real wages can only be reduced to a level compatible with full employment by raising the price level, i.e. by pursuing an expansive monetary policy.
