Meade's General Theory Model: Stability and the Role of Expectations
AbstractThis paper develops a one sector version of James Meade's Keynesian system (1937). In contrast to the traditional IS-LM model, expectations are endogenous and the valuation of capital by financial markets plays a central role in Meade's model. The model formalizes Keynes's views on the role of the stock market and the sensitivity of long-term expectations to current events. With sufficiently elastic expectations, wage flexibility causes a downward spiral of wages, prices, and output, an outcome James Tobin (1975) argued may represent Keynes's contribution better than an underemployment equilibrium sustained by rigid wages.
