...inflation, there will be no positive change to the economic major factors. The practice will not improve the demand and supply levels; hence, the country’s output level will remain stagnant, and unemployment levels will remain a pressing issue (Froyen 45). Therefore, the fiscal policy differs from the Keynesians and monetarists theories since it aims to stir progression in the economy. The government, by allocating a favorable budget finances to enhance the general welfare of the society; it does so by offering pension schemes, unemployment benefits, and housing benefits among others. The economy grows consequently as the amount of money keyed... The Effectiveness of Fiscal Policy between the...

...KEYNESIAN THEORY OF INFLATION AND UNEMPLOYMENT By Number: Introduction According to the Keynesian theory, unemployment is mainly attributed to lack of sufficient aggregate demand for services and goods in a given economy since both creates opportunities for everyone interested in working. When demand for various commodities and services decline, the production of both the demand and services consequently declines, resulting in a decreasing demand for workers, and mass unemployment in the long run. Any economy experiencing unemployment is marked by the situation where the total number of jobless individuals...

The Keynesian view asserts that changes in money supply in the economy do not directly affect the prices of goods and services, inflation results from economic pressures that are manifested in the increases prices of goods and services. According to Robert J. Gordon’s triangle model, there are three main types of inflation: demand- pull inflation, monetary expansion and cost-push inflation (Cate 141).

To the extent that the private sector did not provide demand, the public sector could increase demand in order to keep the economy humming.

These pressures may include a number of various issues such as an increase in demand for goods or a drop in its supply for a certain reason that may lead to the onset of inflation as a result (Abel & Bernanke 103).

The equation for this model is: M V = P Q Where (M) is money supply, (V) is velocity of money, (P) is the price index, and (Q) is the quantity of output sold in a year..
