The rate of unemployment topped 13 per cent in 1985. Nobody would predict that there is a chance, on the present course of policy, of a return to even 8 per cent, on a consistent basis of measurement, in the foreseeable future. 1 deserve special attention. In 1970 the public debt amounted to nearly 75 per cent of GDP whereas now it is around 50 per cent and will decline on present policies.

The unemployed are serving in the war on inflation and they will serve for years to come until the disinflationary stance of financial policy permeates the economy sufficiently to allow lower rates of unemployment, consistent with zero inflation. Moreover yet higher unemployment is needed to drive down inflation to zero and to maintain it there. This line of thinking brings up very forcefully the issue of trade-offs. Whatever significance one attaches to the inflation target, there surely must be some level and persistence of unemployment at which unemployment becomes the priority, even if reduction means no further cuts or an actual increase, in inflation.

With negative real interest rates the debt falls in real terms even in the face of a continuing deficit. Inflation turns out to be a way of servicing debt, but the economy adjusts. Bond holders realise their fate and debt turns to shorter maturities so that market rates can more readily adapt to the inflation risk. As financial markets adapt to the deficit strategy, more extreme bursts of inflation are required to wipe out public debt, and the very expectation of these policies causes capital markets to turn their attention away from the financing of productive capital to the far more important issue of predicting the course of deficits and inflation.
