In the discussion of the fixed employment systems of mercantilism and early capitalism (Nell, 1995) the spending of the wage bill of the capital goods sector returned the funds to the merchants, but with mass-production technology the spending leads to changes in employment and output. ) Finally, let the term in brackets in the two-sector multiplier formula be M, so that ∆C=M∆I; it then follows, by integration, that C=MI. Dividing the former by the latter, it follows that A proportional change in investment generates an equiproportional change in the same direction in consumption.

The pressures of the market, leading firms to take action to reduce the fluctuations of profits, bring about changes in the technology of production, making employment and output more readily adjustable. But when these innovations have spread, this, in turn, changes the way the market adjusts. We can start with Keynes. From craft to mass production 29 Adjustment in the simple case: alternative theories Keynes developed an account of adjustment in which consumption varies in the same direction as investment.

This could then start an upswing. In the same way, capacity expansion will tend to inhibit the rise in prices in the boom—but building new capacity itself increases demand, which will feed the pressure on prices. Interest rates will continue to rise; at some point interest and prices will be sufficiently above normal that it will seem worth while to postpone replacement. This could then prove the start of the From craft to mass production 19 downturn. In short, the pattern of market adjustment provides endogenous mechanisms that could bring a boom to a close, and lead to recovery from a slump.
