Keynes' position in the General Theory is basically unchanged, but Keynes believed his new method of analysing the problem highlighted his departure from the traditional positions: 'the consequences of a change in money-wages are complicated. A reduction in money-wages is quite capable in certain circumstances of affording a stimulus to output as the classical theory supposes. ' (JMK, vn, p. 257) Keynes based his criticism of classical theory on its failure to notice that it provided no explanation of the determinants of the level of demand for output as a whole.

Hart, 0. D. (1982) 'A Model of Imperfect Competition with Keynesian Features', Quarterly Journal of Economics, 36. Weitzman, M. L. (1982) 'Increasing Returns and the Foundations of Unemployment Theory', Economic Journal, 92. 2 The Theory of Demand and Supply of Labour-The Post-Keynesian View J. A. ' (JMK, XIII, p. 180) The problem of the relation of wages to employment is certainly as old, and as widely debated, as the relation between money and prices proposed in the Quantity Theory of money. It is significant that Keynes broke with both positions (which he considered as being analytically equivalent) in his Treatise on Money.

Kregel 29 employment. Keynes' rejection of the Quantity Theory thus also placed in doubt the answer to the question of whether wages are too high by reference to the equilibrium real wage determined by marketclearing equilibrium in the labour market. Keynes was thus led to question the functional relation between real wages and employment, and to call attention to the method by which changes in real wages were brought about in practice. For example, if money and real wages are inversely related then the existence of unemployment suggests that money wages are too low.
