A monetary Minsky model of the Great Moderation and the Great Recession

Steve Keen ()

Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization, 2013, vol. 86, issue C, pages 221-235

Abstract: Steve Keen's model of Minsky's Financial Instability Hypothesis (Keen, 1995) displayed qualitative characteristics that matched the real macroeconomic and income-distributional outcomes of the preceding and subsequent fifteen years: a period of economic volatility followed by a period of moderation, leading to a rise of instability once more and a serious economic crisis. This paper extends that model to build a strictly monetary macroeconomic model which can generate the monetary as well as the real phenomena manifested by both The Great Recession and The Great Moderation.
