 NAIRU - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The concept arose in the wake of the popularity of the Phillips curve which summarized the observed negative correlation between the rate of unemployment and the rate of inflation (measured as annual nominal wage growth of employees) for a number of industrialised countries with more or less mixed economies.
The term NAIRU is an acronym for Non-Accelerating Inflation Rate of Unemployment.
This "full employment" unemployment rate is sometimes termed the "natural rate of unemployment" or the "inflation-threshold unemployment rate": if actual unemployment falls below the NAIRU, the inflation rate is likely to rise quickly (accelerate).

 BSP SEES INFLATION RATE BELOW 5% UNTIL 2009
At the same time, the BSP said the inflation outlook also considered the risks that stemmed from the financial market concerns over domestic political conditions in the run-up to the May 2004 elections, factors that might influence the direction and movement of the peso-dollar exchange rate as well as other financial variables.
This year, the average national inflation rate is still way below the projected 4.5 to 5.5 percent level, due mostly to the slowdown in economic activities that normally creates an upward push on domestic prices.
According to the BSP, the slight uptick in inflation in 2004 and 2005 would be due to the impact of improved output growth and aggregate demand conditions as well as the expected cost-push impact of factors such as the volatility in oil prices.
