Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to illustrate the usefulness of Keynes' approach by modeling it using system dynamics. As this technique allows the researcher to place the analysis in time it is especially well suited to the task. It also allows us to see exactly which elements seem to create the characteristic shape of the business cycle and crisis.
