The principal ingredients of the model are the following: first, a sort of Phillips Curve in terms of the rate of price change, rather than wage change, that shifts one-for-one with variations in the expected rate of inflation; second, a dynamic mechanism by which the expected inflation rate adjusts gradually over time to the actual inflation rate; third, a social utility function that is the integral of the instantaneous rate of utility at each point in time now and in the future; fourth, a derived dependence of the rate of utility at any time upon current utilization or employment—the decision variable under fiscal control—and upon the money rate of interest.
