7 expectations and the phillips curve

Three versions of expectations:

a) static (Keynesian version ):

b) adaptive (monetaristic version):

With it follows:

c) rational (new classical version):

Criticism of new classical theory

Strengths:

Role of expectations is highlighted

Different versions of Phillips curve can be explained

Simultanous explanation of inflation and business cycle

Weaknesses:

Rational expectations not a realistic assumption

Money supply exongenous?

One-sided

Criticism of new classical theory

Learning goals questions

What is a Lucas supply function?

What kinds of expectations can be distiguished?

What is the impact of different combinations of monetary policy and expectations on the Phillips curve?

What are the key drivers for fluctuations in new classical theory?
