A rejoinder to Tily

  • Marc Lavoie
Keywords: Post-Keynesian, Monetary Policy, Fiscal Policy


As everyone knows, Keynes’s General Theory has generated a lot of different interpretations. Geoff Tily presents a brief statement of his own understanding of it in his comment to my paper and he questions my perspective. There are also different strands of post-Keynesianism, as I have myself explained in a number of places. Tily is closest to what has been called Fundamentalist Post Keynesianism.
