about this item

Arguing that the economic theory dominating academic teaching in the last forty years has not been applicable to the economic system, the author shows how post-Keynesian economic theory can apply to the real world and address problems with current theory by legislating regulatory rules on financial markets and having central banks ready to alleviate a financial liquidity crisis if it occurs. He explains the flaws in classical theory; its axioms and relationship to unemployment; the role of money and money contracts and savings and liquidity; why mainstream Keynesian theory is not Keynes' theory; the need to create full employment policies; why the neutral money theory analysis of inflation or deflation is not applicable to the current economy; securitization, liquidity, and market failure, with discussion of the 2008 financial crisis; and globalization, international trade, and international payments.
