MULTIPLIER AND ACCELERATOR THEORY


The Keynesians, have offered a demand area explanation from the business cycle. According to them, the fluctuations in output and employment near your vicinity are caused by variances in aggregate demand. The ups and downs in aggregate demand are caused by modifications in our volume of investment. The volume of investment is usually directly associated with the little efficiency of capital.

The Keynesians failed as they did not explain the cyclical characteristics of the pros and cons in business circuit. J. R. Hicks and Professor Samuelson put forward a fresh theory of business circuit named because Multiplier and Accelerator Theory of business cycle. 

Multiplier and Accelerator Theory
According to J. R. Hicks and Samuelson, the multiplier exclusively cannot describe the cyclical nature with the business cycle.

When real GDP development is anticipated to be substantial, firms assume that all their investment in plants and equipment will probably be profitable. They will, therefore , enhance their total expenditure spending. 

The concept of ignition is certainly not rival for the concept of multiplier. They are parallel concepts. The multiplier shows the effect of changes in autonomous investment to changes in income' and employment. The...
