Kalecki était-il keynésien avant Keynes ?
In a closely argued book, Patinkin  has concluded that Michal Kalecki did not anticipate the General Theory. The three main arguments developed by Patinkin are discussed with reference to his interpretation of Keynes’s General Theory. Focused on Kalecki’s 1934, article, that Patinkin did not know, this study shows: i) that Kalecki set out a static unemployment model; ii) that this model provides an integrated general equilibrium treatment of goods and money markets linked with marginalist short-period pricing theory; iii) that Kalecki develops an original analysis of the relative movements of wages and prices. Thus, Patinkin to the contrary, it is suggested we can give Kalecki credit for anticipating part of the essential ideas of the General Theory. Classification JEL : B22, B31, E12
