Abstract: Kahn and Hicks extended Keynes’s model in the Treatise on Money, having consumption also depend on total profit, not just income. Tobon criticized Kahn’s and Hicks’s extensions arguing that they are not compatible with the central message of the Treatise. It is shown in this paper that there is an error in Tobon’s argument and that correcting this error invalidates his conclusion.
