Some text books, for example Sullivan (2012), simplify the graphing approach to picture the graph of the quadratic function, locate the real zeros, if any, decide whether the graph of the function lies above or below the real line (x-axis) and finally obtain the interval solution of the first inequality.

He argues that (1) Samuelson and Solow had a hyperbola in mind when thinking about the shape of the Phillips curve, and that (2) our appeal to Lipsey as justification for using a quadratic function is misguided because Samuelson and Solow did not have access to Lipsey's paper in 1959 'when they first drafted their paper' (Hoover 2015: 9).
