13 Macroeconomics – The Return of Ideologies

-
Hauptschule
Seminar
english language

Before the global financial crisis, macroeconomists largely settled into the  New Keynesian Consensus , a fusion of demand-side and supply-side thinking that brought a measure of peace to a field priviously in conflict. In the wake of the crisis, the consensus has weakened: Old Keynesianism is stronger than before, the status of monetary policy has fallen, and some economists loudly claim that the global slump is mostly driven by bad supply-side shocks. We will investigate these splintered schools, combining a nontechnical summary of these theories with a look at where these theories do and do not fit the facts of the global slump.
