'The framework that Godley and Lavoie develop, with a consistent numerical and simulational handle on the various models, is a return to a majestic Wicksellian tradition!A whole generation of graduate students have been brought up on policy nihilism, bordering on paralysis in the face of policy dilemmas. A new generation, armed with the tools, concepts and models developed by Godley and Lavoie, can now return to the grand traditions of macroeconomics as an experimental science, focusing on policy.' - K. Vela Velupillai, Fellow, Girton College, Cambridge, UK, and Professor of Economics, University of Trento, Italy 'Wynne Godley has been the moving force behind keeping quantitative non-mainstream macroeconomics alive and flourishing for the last several decades...His work is inspiring, and will guide policy-oriented macroeconomic modellers for decades to come.' - Lance Taylor, Cambridge Journal of Economics '...[This] clearly deserves to become a standard reference for everybody interested in SFC modelling in particular and modern macroeconomics in general. There are already first signs that other economists are indeed inspired by this way of thinking about the economy...' - Till van Treeck, Intervention, European Journal of Economics and Economic Policies


This book challenges the mainstream paradigm, which is based on the inter-temporal optimisation of welfare by individual agents. It introduces a new methodology for studying how it is institutions which create flows of income, expenditure and production together with stocks of assets (including money) and liabilities, thereby determining how whole economies evolve through time. Starting with extremely simple Stock Flow Consistent (SFC) models, the text describes a succession of increasingly complex models. Solutions of these models are used to illustrate ways in which whole economies evolve when shocked in various ways. Readers will be able to download all the models and explore their properties for themselves. A major conclusion is that economies require management via fiscal and monetary policy if full employment without inflation is to be achieved. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .

Great approach to economics but more for academics 22. Juni 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book was defintely written for academic economists, it has some great incites into how the economy really works as opposed to the theories of the dominant neo- classical school.

Working in the investment industry we have largely dismissed any advice and forecasts from economists as joke due to its lack of correlation with the stock market and the real economy. This book gives some hope for the dismal science of economics dominated by the neo classicl school.

It would be great if Marc could write a book on how the economy actually works based on stock flow consistency targeted towards those not as highly trained individuals in economics such as fund managers, retail investors and businesses seeking more accuracy around forecasting the economy.

There are great gems in this book, but you have to read the book very closely to pick them up.

great book (and it is possible to run the simulations without buying any software) 17. August 2014
Von Stephen Thompson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
In this book, the authors develop a new and powerful methodology for macroeconomic modeling, based on a Kaleckian view of how things work. In the models, as in the real world, flow variables (like personal income) generate changes in stock variables (like personal wealth). A distinctive feature of Godley and Lavoie's models is that all relevant stock and flow variables are explicitly accounted for, so that they fit together as a complete system. This approach is in contrast to the partial equilibrium methods that are commonly used in economics, which allow some variables to change while others are ignored or assumed to remain constant. Godley and Lavoie (henceforth, G&L) convincingly argue that the partial equilibrium approach is logically incoherent and generates incorrect results. Of course, their alternative methodology, in which the dynamics of all stock and flow variables are fully accounted for, gives rise to much more complicated models (one of the models in Monetary Economics has over 100 equations). But by using computer simulations, one is able to get an understanding of the models and the properties of their solutions.

The first 300 or so pages of the book develop the individual building blocks of G&L's approach, which are then put together to form surprisingly realistic models in chapters 10-12. These models explicitly describe the interaction of the real and financial sides of the economy. The behavior of the financial institutions (especially the central bank) ends up playing a key role in determining the dynamics of the system as a whole.

Anyone who gives serious thought to the arguments in this book will probably want to challenge certain points, revise certain assumptions, and add features of the real world that the models ignore. But the aim of the book, I believe, is not to promote any one particular model, but rather to introduce and argue for a certain modeling *methodology*. (And judged on those terms, I would say the book is very successful). Nevertheless, there are still some specific propositions established by Godley and Lavoie which are interesting in their own right, and which are likely to survive reasonable revisions to G&L's models. The most important of these is: in modern capitalist economies there is no mechanism in place to automatically drive output toward its full employment level, even in the long run; to achieve full employment, active fiscal and monetary policy is required. Connected with this, the book provides a timely argument against the austerity policies that have been implemented in the US and Europe over the past few years.

In addition, in chapter 11 there are a some interesting results which are related to financialization. First, it is shown that if there is an increase in the ratio of consumer loans to income, this will stimulate aggregate demand in the short run, but diminish it in the long run. As G&L write, this "has interesting repercussions for the evolution of many OECD countries, most notably the United States and Canada, where aggregate demand over the last ten years or so has been sustained by a continuous expansion in the personal debt of households relative to their personal income." Second, G&L show that, in their model, if firms decide to finance a higher proportion of their investment through retained earnings rather than issuance of new equities, then this will also cause aggregate demand to diminish. This potentially sheds some light on the poor macroeconomic performance of the US over the past few decades, where the process of financialization (specifically the "shareholder value movement") has induced firms to finance a larger share of their investments with internal funds. There are many other insights like this scattered all over the book.

There is one last point I wanted to make about the book: if you are willing to learn a little bit of math and a little bit of computer programming, then you can simulate the models in this book (and recreate Godley and Lavoie's results) on your computer without buying any software. Here is what you do. In each model, the the vector x of values of the variables in any given period will satisfy an equation of the form F(x,y) = x, where y is a vector of values from previous periods. Since, in any given period, y is given by the past history of the model, this is a fixed point problem. In all of the models I have tried to simulate so far, this fixed point problem can be solved using a very simple and well-known numerical method called the "fixed point iteration". Using this idea, it is possible to write C programs that generate solutions to the models. To get the specific parameters values used by Godley and Lavoie in their simulations, go to the website referenced in the text (see footnote 24 on the bottom of page 19). I have recreated most of the simulations from chapter 10 using this technique. (I would be happy to share my code if you want to email me -- my contact information is on my amazon profile.)

Rigorous Quantitative Post Keynesian Macroeconomics of Finance 13. März 2013
Von Adrian T. Wilson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I'm writing this review purely on the basis of Chapter 2, which I just read for a class - but I'm assuming that the outstanding quality of this chapter applies to the book as a whole. The chapter I just read uses a rigorous treatment of balance & transactions accounting to help you build a better conceptual model of how macroeconomies (esp. finance) function. The insight added is invaluable. Although the authors are Post Keynesians, the insights here (or at least in the chapter I read) are relatively ideologically neutral, & will help any macroeconomist understand finance better.

Also: yes, this is an academic book. It'll be hard for non-economists to make it through, and the implications of the points raised here may not be as clear. (Plus, yes, if you aren't in academia then you'll probably be less likely to have access to the statistical software that will allow you to access & manipulate their data.)

To study real and solid macroeconomics 7. August 2013
Von danielsvas - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I very important book which brings to the heterodox branch of economics an unified view of post-keynesian perspective and tobinian approach to consistent stock and flow analitical tools for empirical analysis of the macroeconomic system as whole. Godley was one of the most important developers of this method, and writes about it in clear fashion. Great book for economists which wants to study but highly hypothetical, mathematical abstract models. It is the macroeconomic real world as it looks like. There is a lot of math inside, but it is not an abstract exercise without practical purpose.
