7) Y ≡ Ys , ⎭ s d B (r0 ) ≡ B (r0 ) 16 See Crouch (1972, p. 142) for an explicit representation of this hypothesis, and Keynes (1936, p. 20) for a verbal statement in this regard which, however, did not hinder him to attack Mill’s identical statement of this fact (see his p. 18). 32 2 Keynes, the “Classics,” and the “New Classics” that is, it consists of two macroeconomic identities [the first of which relates the desire and the ability to purchase with what is happening in the market for loans, while the second claims that planned income should equal planned output under all circumstances] and an equilibrating mechanism [which – via the market for loans – creates as much desire to spend as there is ability to purchase].

The rate of interest, in clearing the market for bonds, then creates the necessary demand for the predetermined output Y0s . The model implies that unemployment can be lowered only if either money wages fall, whereby Y s (p) is shifted downward, or if the quantity of money (here still of helicopter type) is raised, Felderer and Homburg (1984, Chap. 4) use instead of Y the notional concept Y + w(Ls − Ld ) and thus include the labor market in their derivation of the aggregate budget constraint. The consequences of this approach (Lange and Patinkin) is that Classical underemployment equilibria (due to rigid wages) as they are, for example, discussed in Keynes (1936) are then impossible.

We shall show, on the other hand, how Keynes’ type of analysis can be obtained through minimal modifications and extensions of both the Classical and the “New” Classical Macroeconomics. 7 We have chosen here Ackley’s presentation of Classical Macroeconomics from the many textbook versions that exist of it, since it is in many respects the most complete treatment of this synthetic Classical model. Since this model allows for downwardly rigid money wages W (this assumption will be discussed later on), a central element in the discussion of Ackley’s model is given by the Classical aggregate supply function (Fig.
