The idea of studying inflation occurred to me in April of 1974. At that time, the inflation rate was soaring to over 10 percent and unemployment was also climbing sharply, a state of affairs that economists had long insisted could not happen. Conventional economic wisdom held that, when inflation was high, unemployment would be low and vice-versa. The anomaly of high unemployment and high inflation was shaking not only economics but also the political establishment as well.
