This book provides an introduction to major topics in macroeconomic theory and offers the readers three models for comparing different models. The first model is a mathematical reformulation of Say's Law which clarifies the 'Keynes versus classics' debate from a new point of view. The second model uses income velocity of money circulation as a behavioural function in accordance with the Friedman tradition. This makes it possible to translate the language of the Keynesian model into the language of monetarism and thus directly compare the major schools of the 1970s. The third model is the use of the Phillips curve to represent the functioning of the labour market. This makes it possible to evaluate the fundamentals of the new classical macroeconomics. The book also deals with the macroeconomics of rationing equilibria and offers extensions towards the aggregate demand-supply approach.

Abstract

This book provides an introduction to major topics in macroeconomic theory and offers the readers three models for comparing different models. The first model is a mathematical reformulation of Say's Law which clarifies the 'Keynes versus classics' debate from a new point of view. The second model uses income velocity of money circulation as a behavioural function in accordance with the Friedman tradition. This makes it possible to translate the language of the Keynesian model into the language of monetarism and thus directly compare the major schools of the 1970s. The third model is the use of the Phillips curve to represent the functioning of the labour market. This makes it possible to evaluate the fundamentals of the new classical macroeconomics. The book also deals with the macroeconomics of rationing equilibria and offers extensions towards the aggregate demand-supply approach.
