One way or another, their placement would cause unit costs to increase. The difference between hypothetical full employment at N*hyp and effective employment at N* is called quasiequilibrium unemployment or QUERU52. If the QUERU is treated as the result of a contest between unions, who are only in a position to negotiate nominal wages, and price-setting employers, wage-price spirals may emerge (battles over markups). This amounts to an upward movement along the long-term vertical Phillips curve, provided that the relationship between nominal wages and prices remains stable with differing rates of inflation.
This way, a host of short-term Phillips curves can be designed that, with increasing acceleration of inflation and inefficiency of expansionary policy, converges onto a vertical line. e. at unemployment rate un (see Figure 3). 33 The theoretical definition of full employment deviates from the statistical one as the latter also includes those who are registered as unemployed but who are not prepared to work at the equilibrium wage rate. However, Friedman (1968: 8) in his definition of full employment as “natural rate of unemployment” also included “frictional unemployment”, which emerges due to structural imperfections in the labour market, for example, lacking information about job opportunities, mobility costs and stochastic changes of supply and demand.
This can be explained in part by the incipient popularity of game-theoretical models that were readily applied in this field, in part by preliminary considerations concerning the design of the European Monetary Union. In textbook literature and political discussion, time inconsistency is still invoked to advocate rule binding of monetary and fiscal policy. However, in the light of 37 Policy calculus can be represented by means of a social welfare function or utility maximisation on the part of political decision makers (following the theory of political business cycles by Nordhaus, 1975).
