État social, employeur de dernier recours et théorie postkeynésienne


  • Marc Lavoie


This paper deals with the fourth feature of the social state – the policies that sustain economic activity and employment. Contemporary post-Keynesian economists generally support the principles of functional finance that were proposed by Abba Lerner. These principles now benefit from better foundations, thanks to the current post-Keynesian analysis of the monetary creation process and of interest rate determination. Some post-Keynesians also endorse employer of last resort policies.
