This leads to the conclusion that any stabilisation policy that aims at displacing the unemployment rate from its natural location causes only inflation gaps in the long run and not an increase in employment. It is, thus, inefficient as inflation causes adjustment costs and absorbs economic resources. Friedman and other Monetarists accordingly advocated a rule-bound monetary policy that prevents the emergence of money illusion and inflationary expectations by obliging the central bank to target a growth rate of the money supply that stabilises the value of money in terms of the (inverse of the) price level.

4). In this framework, the real economic losses resulting from combating inflation by means of rising nominal interest rates are quantified as sacrifice ratios in terms of negative output gaps or cumulative changes of the unemployment rate in relation to disinflation (the decline of the inflation rate). The general explanation of the magnitudes of the sacrifice ratios invokes several transmission channels of monetary policy:  In the labour market, the decline of inflation causes real wages to rise if nominal wages are not reduced to the same extent immediately.

The trailblazers of this endeavour were James Meade and Richard Stone, who pointed out a theoretically consistent three-tier system for calculating national income via income, production and expenditure (Meade & Stone, 1941). This approach became decisive for the development of output, income and final expenditure compilation at the various stages of the SNA. In the beginning, however, this concept was controversial. The Meade-Stone system concentrated on national income at factor costs using simple accounting entries of monetary transaction values and entrepreneurial information on depreciation as well as nominal interest rates to capture the factor costs of real capital.
