Interest Rates/Kalecki: In post-Keynesian models in the tradition of Keynes (1) and Kalecki (2) it is often assumed that interest rates will have little influence on demand for goods in the real economy. In particular, there is skepticism about the interest rate response of investment demand. In the so-called investment trap, changes in interest rates have no influence on investment demand. The possibility of a so-called fine-tuning of the economy by monetary policy is therefore viewed with skepticism. Rather, fiscal policy is seen as playing an important role in stabilising economic development.
