The surprise in his model is a reduction in the expected productivity of capital. If these targets are correct, then the result of consumer goods shall be lower during the next period. In his model, the lower expected productivity of capital goods leads young people to accumulate money/government bonds. This reduction in the demand for capital goods and upsurge in the demand for the money “appears” to be a reduction in aggregate demand. In remarks on his blog, I analyzed what I try be some of the ABC’s of saving and investment.
He insisted that rates of interest and inflation are policy factors, but I presume he was talking about his model. My “model” is the supply of saving and demand for investment. Saving is favorably related to the interest rate and investment is negatively related. In the natural interest, saving and investment are equal.
That part of income not allocated to consumer goods is kept. Investment is spending on capital goods. With conserving add up to investment, that part of income not allocated to consumer goods is spent on capital goods instead. Income is here now potential output, the productive capacity of the economy. If the interest rate is below the natural interest rate, saving is significantly less than investment. Spending on consumer goods plus spending on capital goods outstrips the effective capacity of the overall economy.
If the interest is above the natural interest rate, investment is significantly less than saving, and shelling out for consumer goods plus shelling out for capital goods is less than the productive capacity of the economy. Andolfatto’s shock using my simple model is a shift of the investment demand curve to the left. At the original natural interest rate, investment is significantly less than keeping and the sum of consumption and investment is significantly less than the successful capacity of the economy. If we consider the marketplace interest rate modifying from the original natural interest to the new natural interest, as it falls, the amount of investment demanded goes up.
While the demand for capital goods at first fell, it partially recovers because of the lower interest rate. The number of saving supplied decreases. This is actually the same thing as a rise in shelling out for consumer goods. On the new natural interest rate, conserving and investment are again equivalent, and the amount of investment and usage equal the effective capacity of the economy.
However, the total amount saved and invested are both lower and shelling out for consumer goods is higher. There is absolutely no impact on total shelling out for output now. Nominal GDP would remain on target. There is no impact on the price level. The prices of consumer goods may rise, however the prices of capital goods would fall.

What could fail? Suppose there is a central bank targeting the nominal interest rate. Sadly, this is is a very realistic assumption, and one that Aldofatto includes in his model. The reduction in investment demand implies a lower natural interest, but if the market interest start to fall, this pushes it below the central bank’s focus on. If necessary, it sells off some of the possessions it keeps and contracts the number of money enough to prevent the interest from dropping.
If the demand to carry money is rising, then failing to expand the quantity of money enough to match the growing demand will also keep carefully the market interest rate from falling. Because the market interest rate does not fall with the natural interest, investment falls below keeping and the amount of usage and investment is significantly less than the output.
As their sales fall, firms cut back production, causing result and income to fall below potential. This reduction in spending on output and income is inconsistent with nominal GDP targeting. Of course, these decreases could be relative to what nominal GDP would have been, therefore total a smaller than usual increase. A central bank or investment company targeting nominal GDP needs to expand the quantity of money and decrease its focus on for the interest.
