By J. A. Kregel, Alessandro Roncaglia, Egon Matzner

In the mid-1980s the world's industrialised economies entered their moment decade of stagnant progress and mass unemployment paralleled simply by way of the nice stoop. Neo-conservative regulations, which changed conventional Keynesian treatments, were not more winning in halting the inexorable bring up in unemployment: the stigma of failure to house unemployment has touched governments of all political extractions from Conservative to Liberal to Social-Democratic. New views at the unemployment challenge are wanted and this booklet presents them.

Example text

Real wages are viewed as being determined by the operation of the economy as a whole, not by the participants in the labour market. , with reference to effective' demand. Rather than referring to the elasticity of demand for labour in response to a change in money wages for a particular industry and then extending this analysis to the economy as a whole, Keynes sets about producing an elasticity of employment consistent with an endogenous determination of the level of demand. The purpose of this paper will be to attempt to sketch Keynes' alternative method of analysis.

Thus the analysis must start with the impact on Z and D. 2 an increase in wages from WI to w2 will shift zl and Dl upwards to z2 and D2. If the two curves are shifted in the same proportion there is no impact on the aggregate level of employment. A demand for labour curve drawn up to link various levels of the money-wage and the level of employment would then be vertical. If labour is not the sole cost of production and these other costs are not affected by the changes in wages, or are affected less than in proportion, then Z will rise by less than D and the level of employment will be lower when money-wages are higher.

An aggregate supply curve, Z, can be similarly constructed from the s; curves, linking PQs and N for each industry and aggregating across industries with the same weights. The intersection of the two curves represents what Keynes called the 'point of effective demand' which determined the aggregate level of employment for the economy as a whole. 2 J. A. Kregel 33 would expect given his decision to offer employment, the aggregate quantity of which is given by N. The equilibrium level of employment is then given by the point of effective demand at which the expected receipts required for that volume of employment are equal to the receipts that are in fact anticipated.
