Unit: Keynesian approaches and IS-LM

About this unit

The global Great Depression of the late 1920s and 1930s rocked the entire discipline of economics. This lead to a fundamental rethinking of some of the fundamental assumptions made about markets and price adjustments up to that point. In this unit, we explore one of the intellectual developments from this era that reshaped how many economists think about national income determination.
