At that stage, inflation is not significantly higher than where there has been no growth spurt and no temporary increase in inflation but where unemployment is therefore higher. Policy that prevents a growth spurt in order to avoid a temporary increase in inflation at the cost of persistently higher unemployment achieves no significantly greater reduction in inflation over the long run than policy that permits a growth spurt and a temporary increase in inflation in order to achieve a greater reduction in unemployment over the long run.

When S equals vacancies, however, it is not necessarily at the stable inflation rate. If S continues to equal vacancies, prospects of re-employment within a year might be judged good enough to risk wage claims that could eliminate jobs. S may therefore have to exceed vacancies by some margin that raises the risk of becoming long-term unemployed sufficiently to inhibit such wage claims. But, then, assuming employment growth does not eliminate the margin, some short-term unemployed will not be re-employed within a year, becoming long-term unemployed.

The rationale is that hiring long-term unemployed is more costly because they require more training to overcome rusty or obsolete skills or are harder to recruit because they engage in job search less intensively. ) Employers go only as far back in the queue as is needed to fill existing vacancies. If vacancies are less than or equal to S, only the short-term unemployed compete for jobs; the long-term unemployed have little prospect of employment. The willingness of employed workers to press for wages that would increase inflation (or increase unemployment if policy blocks it) is described as depending on the prospects for re-employment if a successful wage claim leads to elimination of their jobs.
