This figure highlights the destabilizing role of the wage–price spiral, where now – due to the assumed investment behavior – we always have a positive impact of real wages on aggregate demand and thus the result that wage flexibility will be destabilizing (if not counteracted by its effects on expected profits and their effect on financial markets and Tobin’s q). We have already indicated that financial markets adjust towards their equilibrium in a stable manner as long as we disregard the expectations dynamics on the financial market.

Note also that equity prices are determined by current stocks solely and thus independent of the inflow of new assets. Note finally that the Central Bank accumulates (or sells) government bonds Bc , equities Ec and dividend payments. 8 Conclusions To summarize, we have derived in this chapter the following propositions and as a result the following policy implications with respect to the Keynes–Metzler–Goodwin–Tobin (KMGT) model of this chapter. KMGTobin Stability Proposition: Eight Dimensional Attracting Balanced Growth holds in the considered model if: • Harrod/Metzler accelerators are sufficiently small • Money Demand is sufficiently inelastic • Equity Market is sufficiently tranquil • Wage–Price Spiral is of Scala Mobile type • Inflationary Climate Update is sufficiently sluggish • Fundamentalists dominate Chartists KMGTobin Policy Theorem: Eight Dimensional Attracting Balanced Growth holds in the considered model for: • A Strong Tax Financed Countercyclical Fiscal Policy • An Implementation of a Scala Mobile situation • A Secondary Role of Metzler Inventory Accelerator • A Sufficiently Slow Inflationary Climate Adjustment • A Sufficiently Large Tobin Tax on Capital Gains Downloaded from Elgar Online by University of Melbourne at 07/20/2013 10:00:08AM 34 A Future for Capitalism • A Constant long-run Money Supply Growth • An anticyclical stock-market-oriented Open Market Policy Thus, it is not the individual behavior of economic agents (firms, households, institutions), but rather the interconnectedness of agents and sectors that produces the stabilizing or destabilizing feedback effects.

The internal structure of M2 is, however, just a matter of proper cash management and should therefore imply that the rate of return ree on equities does not matter for it. The latter only concerns the demand for equities versus the demand for the aggregate M2 which both solely then depend on the rate of return for equities, since the dependence on the rate of interest cancel when M2 is formed. Moreover, since the transaction costs for reallocations within M2 can be assumed as being fairly small and the speed of adjustment of the dynamic multiplier (which is infinite if IS equilibrium is assumed) may be assumed to be large, we have only one critical parameter left in the above proposition which may be crucial for the stability of the considered subsystem of the dynamics, the investment parameter iu , potentially representing an accelerator of the Harrodian type.
