A welfare economics foundation for the full-employment policy
AbstractCombining the dynamic Keynesian cross (Otaki, M., 2007. The dynamically extended Keynesian cross and the welfare-improving fiscal policy. Economics Letters 96, 23-29.) with modified efficient wage bargaining, based on McDonald and Solow (McDonald, I.M. and Solow, R.M. 1981. Wage bargaining and employment. American Economic Review 71, 896-908.), we have succeeded in showing a kind of involuntary unemployment as an equilibrium outcome.
