Golden Rule Savings Rate
Microfoundations of macroeconomics
Natural rate of unemployment
With his work on macroeconomic theory, including price-wage dynamics, and the Golden Rule savings rate, Phelps has been a major influence on post-Keynesian political economic policy.
The Golden Rule savings rate is a re-examination of the von Neumann/Allais work, and extends it into means of determining the ideal investment/savings ratio for inter-generational growth. It attempts to arrive at a calculation of the savings propensity (a Keynes term) where the per-capita consumption rate is at the maximum possible constant value. This is a fundamental value for sustainable economy planning.
