i was just thinking that the reaction to the labour market reduction from a decline in a fall of demand is the main division on economic thought. it is however just one aspect of economic theory is this justified that the segregation of economic thinking should be based in the main in this. if you think about it there are other reasons necessitating demand control for example controlling value of currency internationally and maintaining the value of return in the case of inflation and in the case of deflation the consistency of repayment. thus demand requires intervention regardless of what school of thought you believe in. my point being is the argument to stimulate or not stimulate redundant. should we be basing the division of economic thinking in other ways. i find the rational expectation debate almost pointless there will be times when intervention is needed regardless of stimulation due to the reasons above. i admit it does have some importance to prevent over stimulation. although there are other important economic arguments. should the argument be what mechanism should be used or to regulate or not to regulate. what do you think.
