Nevertheless, “the aggregate income measured in terms of the wage-unit is, as a rule, the principal variable upon which the consumptionconstituent of the aggregate demand function will depend” (GT, p. 96). The consumption function, in Keynes’s view, was of importance because it led directly to the multiplier which explained how “the changes in the amount of employment will be a function of the net changes in the amount of investment” (GT, p. 114). It was “to the general principle of the multiplier to which we have to look for an explanation of how fluctuation in the amount of investment, which are a comparatively small proportion of the national income, are capable of generating fluctuations in aggregate employment and income so much greater in amplitude than themselves” (GT, p.

It was “to the general principle of the multiplier to which we have to look for an explanation of how fluctuation in the amount of investment, which are a comparatively small proportion of the national income, are capable of generating fluctuations in aggregate employment and income so much greater in amplitude than themselves” (GT, p. 122). Thus the long-run, or secular, consumption-income relation fades into the background. To Keynes the cyclical consumption function is of major significance, for the major problem he set is to explain cyclical fluctuations.

In what follows we will: 1. Present an exposition of standard, or conventional Keynesian doctrine, ending with the neoclassical synthesis. 2. Derive an alternative interpretation of Keynes—one which builds upon those aspects of The General Theory that emphasize investment in a world where business cycles exist and engender uncertainty. This leads to a quite different image of how the world operates than that embodied in current standard theory. 3. Examine the policy and philosophical implications of the alternative interpretation of Keynes.
