Kahn and Economic Dynamics
AbstractIn his famous book, The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money, Keynes was less than generous to his pupil and admirer Kahn. In 1931, the late Lord Kahn published an analysis of the revolutionary concept that national output was controlled by available resources but by effective demand. His analysis was both sequential and nonlinear and hence could generate chaotic, irregular time series of national output with the remarkable new conception that a completely determinate system, with fully specified structure, could generate behavior which was irregular and unpredictable. This remarkable conception meant that the familiar irregularity of economic time series had not one but two sources: not only the exogenous shocks but also unpredictable behavior generated endogenously by the nonlinearities characteristic of economic structures.
