Global Secular Stagnation: Keynes, Schumpeter, or Veblen?

+ Register for this 

What explains slow growth in the global economy? In this talk, Schwartz looks to Keynes, Schumpeter and Veblen to develop a framework for understanding the sources of slow growth, income inequality, and profit inequality in the information economy. Looking at changes in firm strategy and structure (Veblen) enables us to revise demand side (Keynes) and supply side (Schumpeter) arguments dealing with stagnation in the 1930s continuous flow production economy to fit the new circumstances of the information economy.
