Keynesian economics includes

  • Disequilibrium in macro economy (insufficient demand)
  • Imperfect labour markets (e.g. Sticky wages)
  • Paradox of thrift (in recession, individuals save more, but this worsens the economic downturn
  • Liquidity trap. When low-interest rates fail to boost demand.
  • Importance of confidence to economic cycle.
  • Deficit spending. In recession, Keynes advocated government borrowing to provide an injection of demand into the economy.
