The Coordination Problem in the Stockholm School

Open access

Abstract

We revisit the Stockholm School of Economics with first principles. The objective is a rendition of a cumulative Myrdal-Wicksell process. To that end, we derive heterogeneous responses of consumers and producers to changes in the state of the world and define a Myrdal-Keynes equilibrium.
