Absolute income hypothesis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

The Absolute Income Hypothesis (AIM) is a theory of consumption that is closely associated with the work of Keynes - in particular, The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money (GTEIM), published in 1936. Indeed, the AIH has the interpretation of a simple representation of the more quantitative aspects of Keynes’s views concerning the determination of aggregate consumption expenditure.
