Cost-push inflation is caused by an increase in the cost of production. It therefore follows that to decrease the inflation rate the cost of production must be decreased. This can be done by decreasing profit margins, increase productivity, decreasing wages, etc. In the AD-AS model the aggregate supply curve (AS) shifts left. The end result is that inflation declines, production increases and unemployment decreases.
