Post Keynesian Economics & Modeling the Crash Steve Keen Kingston University London IDEAeconomics Minsky Open Source System Dynamic s www.debtdeflation.com/blogs What is Post Keynesian Economics? According to Diane Coyle, one of the authors of the CORE Curriculum On BBC Radio 4 Teaching Economics After the Crash [Post-Crash] has this fixation on Schools of Thought This idea that there is a monolithic Neoclassical School of Thought thats dominated economics departments and the curriculum for a long period of time, and that it needs to switch to a different School of Thought, Heterodox Economics, or at least introduce lots of different Schools of Economic Thought. I think thats going backwards. Thats going back to the economics of the 1930s and these almost Medieval Scholastic debates about what your world view was. At Manchester debate with me & George Cooper What is Post Keynesian Economics?

What is Post Keynesian Economics? Does mainstream economics have a sound explanation for either crisis? there is now overwhelming evidence that the main factor depressing aggregate demand was a worldwide contraction in world money supplies. The monetary data for the United States are quite remarkable, and tend to underscore the stinging critique of the Feds policy choices by Friedman and Schwartz Let me end my talk by abusing slightly my status as an official representative of the Federal Reserve. I would like to say to Milton and Anna: Regarding the Great Depression. You're right, we did it. We're very sorry. But thanks to you, we won't do it again. ( Bernanke 2002) Whoops What is Post Keynesian Economics? Did mainstream economics dispassionately consider other theories? Bernanke before the 2007 crisis: Hyman Minsky (1977) and Charles Kindleberger (1978) have in several places argued for the inherent instability of the financial system but in doing so have had to depart from the assumption of rational economic behavior I do not deny the possible importance of irrationality in economic life; however it seems that the best

research strategy is to push the rationality postulate as far as it will go. (Bernanke 2000, Essays on the Great Depression, p. 43) Ignore alternative views because they dont fit your paradigm? CORE curriculum does the same today after the crisis What is Post Keynesian Economics? So is Post-Keynesian economics 70 or 100 year old historical ways of thinking about the economy when the economy has changed so much Or A different approach to economics inspired by a similar crisis & similar failure of mainstream economics 80 years ago? According to mainstream economists: the former In reality: the latter Many other Schools of Thought exist that CORE ignores Post Keynesian (see King 2003, 2012 for detailed history) Ecological Institutional Austrian Marxist What is Post Keynesian Economics? Part critique of Neoclassical Economics

Dates from well before Keynessee Veblen 1898 Why is Economics not an Evolutionary Science? Keynes simply break point at which PK diverged from Hicksian interpretation of Keynes (Hicks 1937 vs Keynes 1937) Part alternative approach based on realism rather than simplifying assumption fantasies Uncertainty isnt risk (Keynes 1937, Kalecki 1937) Rational Prophetic Expectations is a delusion The economy is cyclical & evolutionary (Kalecki 1968, Goodwin 1967) Economy is never in equilibrium (Hicks 1981) Evolution rather than than price competition (Schumpeter 1934) Money, banks and debt matter (Fisher 1933, Minsky 1975) Post Keynesian Economics: the critiques One example among many: Empirical critique of Neoclassical assumption of rising marginal cost (Sraffa 1926, Eiteman, Means, Lee) Neoclassical theory: rising marginal cost Fixed input (capital) in short run Vary other input (labor) while fixed input constant Marginal cost rises because of diminishing marginal productivity Neoclassical theory of production: rising marginal cost There is some ideal worker:machine

ratio (e.g., one worker per jackhammer) In short run, firm has fixed number of jackhammers ? If this sounds weird, good! Youre on to something To dig holes, firm has to hire workers 1st worker operates all six jackhammers at once: pretty inefficient! Additional workers might show increasing productivity per worker for a while (two workers operating 3 jackhammers each less messy than one operating 6, ditto three workers operating two each) Neoclassical theory of production: rising marginal cost Eventually ideal ratio reached (6 workers for 6 jackhammers) ? ? ?

Then to dig more holes, have to have more than one worker per jackhammer: ? More holes can be dug with 2 workers per jackhammer than with one But productivity of two workers per jackhammer less than one worker per jackhammer Neoclassical theory of production: rising marginal cost So productivity per worker might rise for a while; But ultimately falls as more output can only be produced by adding more variable inputs (labour) to fixed input (capital) past ideal labour:capital ratio Addition to output from each additional worker falls (but doesnt become negative) Diminishing marginal productivity (DMP) DMP leads to rising marginal cost Aggregate of firm marginal cost curves IS the market supply curve Preliminary Post Keynesian logical critique (Sraffa 1926)

Sraffas critique of supply curve Concept of diminishing marginal productivity assumes One input to production fixed in short run One input variable in short run Generates rising supply curve Supply curve must be independent of demand curve for supply & demand analysis Sraffa (1926) disputed concept of fixed factor in short run If define factor & industry broadly (e.g., capital & agriculture) then any increase in intensity of usage will drive up price of factor Change in price will affect distribution of income This will affect demandcant have independent supply & demand curves Sraffas critique of supply curve If define factor & industry narrowly (e.g., stapling gun & cardboard boxes) then amount in one industry cant be fixed Extra staplers can be acquired from other industries with little impact on price of other industries trivial impact on demand for cardboard boxes Factors stapling guns and labour thus employed at ideal ratio, & productivity constant: Not subject to diminishing marginal productivity Cardboard box output a linear function of labour input Marginal product constant so cost constant: Pric e?

Or... Dq2 Supply Dq3 Dq1 ? ? ? Price & Cost Price/ bushel Its either: Interdependent supply & demand curves: different demand curve for every point on supply curve Wheat output Sraffas critique of supply curve

Constant capitallabor ratio out to capacity Labour input with constant labour/land ratio Falling average cost Constant Marginal Cost Q1 Q2 Q3 Quantity? Agriculture Constant marginal cost so falling Wheat average cost From Fallacies to Reality Empirical critique: in numerous surveys Andrews, Bishop, Downie, Eiteman, Eiteman and Guthrie, Haines, Hall & Hitch, Lee, Means, Tucker, the Oxford Economic Research Group, (see Lee 1998 for full details) Even leading Neoclassical Alan Blinder (1998, Chapter 4) 95% of real firms report marginal revenue/cost irrelevant, foreign concepts Every extra sale adds to profit

When did a Sales Manager ever say to her sales staff: Stop selling! Weve reached the point where marginal cost equals marginal revenue! No-one ever has given that order, and no-one ever will! Cost functions as seen by managers Eiteman & Guthrie 1952 showed managers 8 hypothetical average cost curves: 3-5 neoclassical: 5 high at minimum output, decline gradually to a least-cost point near capacity, after which they rise sharply. 6 high at minimum output, decline gradually to a

least-cost point near capacity, after which they rise slightly; 7 high at minimum output, decline gradually to capacity at which point they are lowest. (Eiteman & Guthrie 1952: Cost functions as seen by managers Curve Indicated 1 Number of companies 0 2 0 3 1 4

3 5 14 6 113 7 203 8 0 Total 334 Only 18 out of 334 fitted neoclassical vision of diminishing marginal productivity, rising marginal cost Almost 2/3rds reported they had lowest unit costs at maximum output

Cost functions as seen by managers Neoclassical cost curves fits just 5% of companies & products Other 95% experience constant or falling marginal cost Dont even get to first base on MR=MC MC has to rise for MR=MC to be any guide to profit maximisation (even with modified formula) By Firms By Products Otherwise average costs above marginal cost Supports MC=MR Contradicts MC=MR Per Cent supporting MC=MR 18 316 5.4 What happened to diminishing marginal productivity? 62 1020 5.7 Modern industrial production Modern factories & absence of diminishing returns: Engineers design factories so as to cause the variable factor to be used most

efficiently when the plant is operated close to capacity. Under such conditions an average variable cost curve declines steadily until the point of capacity output is reached. A marginal cost curve derived from such an average cost curve lies below the average cost curve at all scales of operation short of capacity, a fact that makes it physically impossible for an enterprise to determine a scale of operations by equating marginal cost and marginal revenues. (Eiteman 1947) Modern industrial production As some of Eitemans survey respondents put it: The amazing thing is that any sane economist could consider No. 3, No. 4 and No. 5 as representing business thinking. It looks as if some economists, assuming a premise that business is not progressive, are trying to prove the premise by suggesting curves like Nos. 3, 4 & 5. Even with the low efficiency and premium pay of overtime work, our unit costs would still decline with increased production since the absorption of fixed expenses would more than offset the added direct expenses incurred. Many more critiques than this Indicative of Neoclassical simplifying assumptions contradicting reality Post Keynesian economists insist on realism rather than fantasy

Post Keynesian Economics: the alternatives Many alternatives strands within broad Post Keynesian school Sraffian economics (derived from Sraffa 1960) Input-output focus (Steedman) Kaleckian economics Cyclical growth focus Stock-Flow Consistent Approach (SCFA) Strict accounting for monetary stocks & flows (Godley, Lavoie) Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) Capacity for fiat money creation to overcome recessions Minskian economics Monetary explanation for dynamic instability & crises My approach just one of many Attempting to blend all above, and to incorporate Energy/entropy/ecology analysis (Ayres) Macroeconomics with banks, debt & money Neoclassical mainstream ignores banks in macroeconomics In particular, he [Keen] asserts that putting banks in the story is essential. Now, I'm all for including the banking sector in stories

where it's relevant; but why is it so crucial to a story about debt and leverage? Keen says that it's because once you include banks, lending increases the money supply. OK, but why does that matter? He seems to assume that aggregate demand can't increase unless the money supply rises, but that's only true if the velocity of money is fixed; so have we suddenly become strict monetarists while I wasn't looking? In the kind of model Gauti and I use, lending very much can and does increase aggregate demand, so what is the problem? (Krugman March 2012) Macroeconomics with banks, debt & money Eggertsson-Krugman appendix has model with a bank! Almost unheard of in mainstream economics: Model has lending between patient & impatient agents Bank acts as intermediary: Facilitates loan, charges intermediation fee Replicated in Minsky Other New Keynesian elements deliberately not modelled Hybrid worker-capitalists so wage-profit distribution ignored Endowed with Prophetic Expectations instead Both Patient & Impatient are capitalists

Patient produces consumption good (as in E-K model) Impatient borrows & produces investment good (as in E-K) The conventional veil over barter vision of money Using Minsky to model Krugmans conventional vision of lending: Patient people lend to impatient people Banks just intermediate between the two groups Therefore lending doesnt change demand Keen then goes on to assert that lending is, by definition (at least as I understand it), an addition to aggregate demand. I guess I dont get that at all. If I decide to cut back on my spending and stash the funds in a bank, which lends them out to someone else, this doesn't have to represent a net increase in demand. Yes, in some (many) cases lending is associated with higher demand, because resources are being transferred to people with a higher propensity to spend; but Keen seems to be saying something else, and I'm not sure what.
