    It may turn out that the propensity to consume will be so easily strengthened by the effects of a falling rate of interest, that full employment can be reached with a rate of accumulation little greater than at present. These ideas form the most significant original book-length contribution to monetary economics since Don Patinkin's Money, Interest, and Prices. What changes how much they spend? It falls into two parts. Call that the yield. The classical doctrine—that the economy is always at or near the natural level of real GDP—is based on two firmly held beliefs: Say's Law and the belief that prices, wages, and interest rates are flexible.

    Marginal prime costs and labor costs increase as industry is forced to use more expensive equipment and laborers, resulting in higher prices. Storage costs for goods and services may eliminate this paradox but perhaps not completely. However, it can also be held by individuals as idle cash and Theory of money. In any given industry we have a demand schedule for the product relating the quantities which can be sold to the prices asked; we have a series of supply schedules relating the prices which will be asked for the sale of different quantities on various bases of cost; and these schedules between them lead up to a further schedule which, on the assumption that other costs are unchanged except as a result of the change in outputgives us the demand schedule for labour in the industry relating the quantity of employment to different levels of wages, the shape of the curve at any point furnishing the elasticity of demand for labour. That's fine, is there an economic book out there that didn't have errors and mistakes WoN is full of them? Small Changing Need more information

    An important difference is that when competition is not perfect, "it is marginal revenue, not price, which determines the output of the individual producer". The most unfavourable contingency is that in which money-wages are slowly sagging downwards and each reduction in wages serves to diminish confidence in the prospective maintenance of wages. There are advantages in some degree of flexibility in the wages of particular industries so as to expedite transfers from those which are relatively declining to those which are relatively expanding. But the money-wage level as a whole should be maintained as stable as possible, at any rate in the short period.

The economic system cannot be made self-adjusting along these lines. If we are thinking in terms of money-wages, we must, of course, correct for changes in the value of Theory of money but this leaves the general tendency of the argument unchanged, since prices certainly do not change in exact proportion to changes in money-wages.

An uninterrupted process of transition, such as the above, to a new long-period position can be complicated in detail. Deflation does the opposite. It is interesting to notice that the characteristic which has been traditionally supposed to render gold especially suitable for use as the standard of value, namely, its inelasticity of supply, turns out to be precisely the characteristic which is at the bottom of the trouble.

It is the return of confidence, to speak in ordinary language, which is so insusceptible to control in an economy of individualistic capitalism.

If this happens, then it seems likely that within a generation expected return will reach zero [AS:!! It all depends on Theory of money far the rate of interest is favourable to investment, after taking account of the marginal efficiency of capital. The most unfavourable contingency is that in which money-wages are slowly sagging downwards and each reduction in wages serves to diminish confidence in the prospective maintenance of wages.

If this is the groundwork of the argument and, if it is not, I do not know what the groundwork issurely it is fallacious. The end result is that the equilibrium price level falls prices and the rate of interest book P 3, but the economy returns to the natural level of real GDP.

There may be some economists who would maintain that there is no reason why demand should be affected, arguing that aggregate demand depends on the quantity of money multiplied by the income-velocity of money and that there is no obvious reason why a reduction in money-wages would reduce either the quantity of money or its income-velocity.

Woodford's book is especially commendable for its forward-looking elements, such as how to conduct monetary policy in a near cashless society, and how international currencies may coexist when global financial markets become truly integrated.

But I think this is entirely due to a difference in philosophies: the General Theory was the first book on economics I could Theory of money understand. If Theory of money is present, is it a good idea for a lender to lend at a rate of interest below the expected inflation rate?

III It follows, therefore, that if labour were to respond to conditions of gradually diminishing employment by offering its services at a gradually diminishing money-wage, this would not, as a rule, have the effect of reducing real wages and might even have the effect of increasing them, through its adverse influence on the volume of output.

This is fortunate, because lower consumption also means lower income when people buy less, businesses make less, so they pay you less. If interest rates go up, it no longer becomes possible for them to make money, even though the machine remains unchanged.

It falls into two parts. But now people invest their money in the stock market, which revises its profitability estimates minute-by-minute. The total income of the community is just the amount sold minus the user cost. For it is, so to speak, a game of Snap, of Old Maid, of Musical Chairs — a pastime in which he is victor who says Snap neither too soon nor too late, who passes the Old Maid to his neighbour before the game is over, who secures a chair for himself when the music stops.

I think I also use this kind of interchangeably with capitalists.
