Economy/New Political Economy/Public Choice: unlike post-Keynesianism and neoclassics, the New Political Economy assumes that economic policy-makers have sufficient control possibilities. As a result, fluctuations in the sense of political economic cycles are deliberately accepted in order to create a positive macroeconomic environment - particularly on the labour markets - in the run-up to upcoming elections, which significantly increases the chances of political leaders being re-elected.
