Are we all Keynesians again ? /

by Carling, Robert.

Publisher: St Leonards, NSW The Centre for Independent Studies 2009Description: PDF.Notes: URL: 'http://www.cis.org.au/issue_analysis/IA106/IA106.pdf' Checked: 2/06/2009 11:32:10 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: "The unfolding global economic debacle has led many governments, including our own, to reach into their policy toolkits for fiscal stimulus measures. In doing so, they have revived fiscal policy as a counter-cyclical tool, which was so much in vogue until the early 1970s that Richard Nixon famously declared We are all Keynesians now. Are we all Keynesians again? At first sight, fiscal pump priming might appear to have a lot going for it in current conditions: inflation is receding; spare capacity is increasing, at least in the major developed economies; and the crisis in the banking system is weakening conventional monetary policy. Even so, the revival of activist fiscal policy ought to be highly controversial because the 1970s and 1980s saw a new consensus emerge that it was ineffective or even damaging. The lessons from that era remain valid today but are being ignored by governments desperate to prop up sagging economies. There is a debate on these issues in the United States, but they have received much less scrutiny in Australia." -- Executive summaryAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Capitalist revolutionary : John Maynard Keynes /

by Backhouse, Roger E | Bateman, Bradley W.

Publisher: Cambridge, MA Harvard University Press 2011Description: 197 p. ; 22 cm.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index.Summary: "The Great Recession of 2008 restored John Maynard Keynes to prominence. After decades when the Keynesian revolution seemed to have been forgotten, the great British theorist was suddenly everywhere. The New York Times asked, "What would Keynes have done?" The Financial Times wrote of "the undeniable shift to Keynes." Le Monde pronounced the economic collapse Keynes's "revenge." Two years later, following bank bailouts and Tea Party fundamentalism, Keynesian principles once again seemed misguided or irrelevant to a public focused on ballooning budget deficits. In this readable account, Backhouse and Bateman elaborate the misinformation and caricature that have led to Keynes's repeated resurrection and interment since his death in 1946. Keynes's engagement with social and moral philosophy and his membership in the Bloomsbury Group of artists and writers helped to shape his manner of theorizing. Though trained as a mathematician, he designed models based on how specific kinds of people (such as investors and consumers) actually behave -- an approach that runs counter to the idealized agents favored by economists at the end of the century. Keynes wanted to create a revolution in the way the world thought about economic problems, but he was more open-minded about capitalism than is commonly believed. He saw capitalism as essential to a society's well-being but also morally flawed, and he sought a corrective for its main defect: the failure to stabilize investment. Keynes's nuanced views, the authors suggest, offer an alternative to the polarized rhetoric often evoked by the word "capitalism" in today's political debates."--From the dust-jacket front flap. ; Contents: Keynes returns, but which Keynes? -- The rise and fall of Keynesian economics -- Keynes the moral philosopher: confronting the challenges to capitalism -- Keynes the physician: developing a theory of a capitalist economy -- Keynes's ambiguous revolution -- Perpetual revolutionAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Flexicurity : the Shangri-La of EU or merely another mirage? /

by Ryberg, Camilla Gohler | Jantzen, Peter Ostenfeld | Larsen, Soren Dyrberg | Hansen, Esben Opstrup.

Publisher: Roskilde, Denmark Roskilde Universitetscenter 2006Description: 138 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Flexicurity has come to be known as the new solution to the unemployment problems in Europe. The reason for this is that it has taken credit for the fall in the Danish unemployment in 1994. This paper analyses whether there is any truth to this assessment. Further more it develops a post Keynesian perspective to uncover alternative explanations low unemployment in Denmark. The analysis is then discussed in a European context. This is done comparing the real abilities of the Danish flexicurity model in reaching the Lisbon Strategy goal of 70% employment in 2010. In doing so well incorporate the obstacles posed by the Stability and Growth Pact and the European Central Bank. Finally we discuss an alternative way of reducing the employment problem in Europe through a Post Keynesian critique.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Not for bad weather : flexicurity challenged by the crisis /

by Tangian, Andranik | European Trade Union Institute.

Publisher: Brussels European Trade Union Institute 2010Description: 9 p.: ill. charts.Other title: Flexicurity challenged by the crisis.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: ETUI. Policy brief issue 3/2010 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Flexicurity is a European labour market policy adopted in 2007 as part of the European Employment Strategy. The policy aims at enhancing the flexibility of employment relations (easing firing and hiring, adjustable working hours, variable pay, etc.) and compensating for such changes by means of improvements in employment security and employment activation. This paper, based on a longer report (Tangian 2010), analyses the relationship between the economic crisis and flexicurity. It is shown with statistical certainty that countries with high labour flexibility are more damaged by the current crisis. The damage is expressed in terms of output gap (under-utilization of full economic potential), public debt, size of bailout packages and unemployment rate. It is concluded that flexicurity is insufficiently compatible with a sustainable economy. This implies that the policy of flexicurity requires profound revision and should not be continued in its current form. A better alternative to flexicurity would be ?normalisation? of employment relations; in other words, less flexibility, which would also result in lower social security expenditure.Availability: (1)
