Chapter Ten 2 The Great Depression caused many economists to question the validity of classical economic theory (from Chapters 3-6). They believed they needed a new model to explain such a pervasive economic downturn and to suggest that government policies might ease some of the economic hardship that society was experiencing. In 1936, John Maynard Keynes wrote The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money. In it, he proposed a new way to analyze the economy, which he presented as an alternative to the classical theory. Keynes proposed that low aggregate demand is responsible for the low income and high unemployment that characterize economic downturns. He criticized the notion that aggregate supply alone determines national income. The Great Depression caused many economists to question the validity of classical economic theory (from Chapters 3-6).

Chapter Ten 4 “Keynesian” means different things to different people. It’s useful to think of the basic textbook Keynesian model as an elaboration and extension of the “classical theory.” Its variable velocity of money and “sticky” prices reflects Keynes’s belief that the Classical model’s shortcomings arose from its overly-strict assumptions of constant velocity and highly flexible wages and prices. The model of aggregate demand (AD) can be split into two parts: IS model of the “goods market” and the LM model of the “money market.” “IS stands for Investment Saving, Whereas LM stands for Liquidity Money.”
