Competition and Aggregate Demand
This paper examines the macroeconomic effects of competition. The
Kaleckian view of these effects is considered along with the neoclassical, with
special attention paid to the degree of monopoly and its effect on investment.
Both the product and price competition of firms are examined, and the macroeconomic consequences of imperfect competition are shown to be quite differen than the ones highlighted in economics.
