  The Lucas critique is an important result from economics. Basically, it states that purely empirical relationships (relationships between variables that are estimated from the data without backing from economic theory) cannot be used to do meaning.   A classic example of this fallacy was the erroneous inference that a regression of inflation on unemployment (the Phillips curve) represented a structural trade-off for policy to exploit. Keywords Expectations Lucas Critique Macroeconomic policy evaluation Optimization behaviour Phillips curve Rational expectations Rational expectations.

Milton Friedman () and Edmund Phelps () argued that the concept of the Phillips curve does not apply to the long run (that is, a period long enough for the participants in the economy to become fully aware of aggregate prices and inflation).2 In the long run, monetarists argued, price changes will have no impact on the unemployment rate. A Phillips curve shows the tradeoff between unemployment and inflation in an economy. From a Keynesian viewpoint, the Phillips curve should slope down so that higher unemployment means lower inflation, and vice versa. However, a downward-sloping Phillips curve is a short-term relationship that may shift after a few years.

Fuhrer (), ‘The Phillips Curve is Alive and Well’ That is, the Lucas critique has had a tremendous impact on macroeconomic theory and policy analysis. To give credit to Lucas (), the next section aims partly to give a review of this important contribution, and partly to point out some of the consequences that the Lucas critique had on the development of macroeconomics.
