1, the economy would remain at full employment, and deflationary policies would reduce real incomes but not employment. , 1988, p. 16). Empirical evidence on this issue is ambiguous according to the studies reviewed below. No systematic growth effects were apparent from analysis of Fund programmes in the 1970s; in the 1980s, on balance, Fund programmes appear to have had negative effects on growth in the short term while compensating medium-term effects have not appeared. , 1988, p. 15). The argument is that the poor lack assets which act as hedges against inflation and also hold a disproportionately large amount of cash because they lack other means of exchange, such as credit cards.
Institutional deficiencies are a major cause. 1 implied instantaneous flexibility; but in most economies, moving out of NT to T involves a major transformation which requires investment and is not possible to any very significant extent in the short run. 2 shows what happens in a rigid economy where resources cannot move between sectors: in this case, deflation is the only way of achieving the required adjustment and serious under-employment is the inevitable result as incomes have to be cut-back to d, where consumption of tradables equals production and there is considerable unused capacity in the non-tradable sector (ad).
Consumption effects are not allowed for. This case follows the pattern of factor immobility between T and NT discussed above. It could also be interpreted in terms of changes in the terms of trade between the rural and urban sectors, with the impact on poverty depending on the change in terms of trade that occurs and the extent of poverty in each sector. Changes in intra-sectoral distribution are not allowed for. e. the Stolper-Samuelson model—the formula becomes more complex. Now there is a change in wages, Dw, as a result of changed factor use.
