...Keynesian Economics versus ical Economics Keynesian and ical economics are among the dominant schools ofthought that have shaped the development and understanding of macroeconomics. Classical economics was the main theory of macroeconomics before the 1930s and the great depression (Tucker 483). The classical aggregate demand-aggregate supply model centers on the relationship between price and wage levels and output levels. This theory concludes that a free market economy’s output level always self-corrects to full employment and that prices and wages increase and decrease with transformations in aggregate demand. Increases in aggregate demand causes a rise in prices and wages, and decreases... ...

The theory was created by John Maynard Keyes to explain the Great Depression in the 1930s (Samuelson & Nordhaus, 2010). At the time, the classical economics theories assumed that the free market would automatically self-regulate by providing employment and sustain the economy. Goods and services’ total demand in the economy at a specified time is aggregate demand. Prior to Keynesian economics, the assumption was that a decrease in aggregate demand...
