Inflation and Unemployment Contributions to a New Macroeconomic Approach

By Mauro Baranzini, Alvaro Cencini Copyright 1996

    This work challenges traditional monetary theory by focusing on the role of banks and provides a new insight into the role played by bank money and capital accumulation. An international team of contributors reappraise analyses of the inflation and unemployment developed by Marshall, Keynes and Robertson.
