A SIMPLE MODEL OF KEYNESIAN UNEMPLOYMENT

Tetsuya Nakajima ()

Metroeconomica, 2010, vol. 61, issue 2, pages 239-256

Abstract: This paper presents a general equilibrium model that extends a static New Keynesian framework to an overlapping generations model. The model shows multiple stationary states, one of which has the following strong Keynesian features: (1) a reduction in wages generates increased unemployment through a decrease in consumption, and (2) the fiscal multiplier is larger than unity and is increasing in the wage share in income.
