Macroeconomics from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: Considering the history of macroeconomics it is surprising that Tinbergens theory of policy is identified with so-called Keynesian economics by Lucas and Lucasians. Keynesian macropolicy is accused of neglecting the role of expectations and the effects of any changes of institutions. Due to textual evidence this paper explains that both the disregard of expectations and the institutional evolutionary process can not be addressed to Keynes's analysis.
