    Abstract

    In this article Michael Bruno and Jeffrey Sachs' theOrY of stagflation in the 1970's is evaluated with regard to Finland. They argue that a rise in the price of energy and raw materials together with real wage rigidity caused profit rates and demand for labour to fall. Theoretical and empirical arguments concerning the validity of Bruno and Sachs' theory are dealt with. The results of a wage equation study show some negative response in real wages when the price of materials rises.
