A Comparison of New Consensus as a Theoretical Framework of Inflation Targeting with Post-Keynesian Economics
AbstractThe article deals with the relationship of post-Keynesian economics to new consensus as a theoretical framework of inflation targeting. First, new consensus with its roots in Wicksell´s approach is briefly introduced. In the next parts differences and meeting-points of new consensus and post-Keynesian economics are discussed. Among the main similarities is identified: short term interest rate management, endogeneity of monetary base, endogeneity of money supply. But a lot of basic differences are found (goals of monetary policy, interest rate functions, nature of inflation, shape of Phillips curve and others). As a result, on the general level new consensus and post-Keynesian economics seem to be rather incompatible.
