The New Consensus on Monetary Policy and its Post-Keynesian Critique
This paper seeks to look at the underlying framework of the New Consensus models, providing a Post-Keynesian critique. In the light of this critique, the model is reformulated, with its basic structure intact, but with alternative post-Keynesian specifications of the Phillips curve being considered. It is shown that such modifications, either allow a long run trade-off between the rate of inflation and the level of output, the rate of capacity utilization and, therefore, unemployment, or, in our preferred specification, changes in output and capacity have no implications for inflation over a large range of capacity utilization.
