ABSTRACT
The article discusses how monetary policy was affected by the Great Inflation in the U.S. during the 1960s and 1970s. It is stated that the Phillips curve is a set of observations that show an inverse relationship between inflation and unemployment, and a flat Phillips curve would allow the achievement of full employment level with little increase in inflation. It is stated that the Great Inflation included a monetary aggregate (M1) that provided a good measure of the monetary policy.
