Postkeynesianische Beschäftigungstheorie. Einige Prinzipielle Überlegungen

In a most recent textbook on employment theory Landmann/Jerger 1999), there is no mention of a distinct post Keynsian employment theory. This is the more surprising as the post Keynesian employment theory offers a truly macro- economic approach to the determination of the aggregate level of employment in an economy (with sets it apart from most neo-classical labour market theories) without lacking a comprehensive micro-economic foundation (as was the case with standard Keynesian employment theory). This paper intends to give a textbook-like survey of the principals of such a post Keynesian theory of employment and derives some principles for the impact of (nominal) wage policy on employment.
