Der Finanzkeynesianismus in der Tradition Hyman Minskys
Financial Keynesian with his emphasis on a broad definition of liquidity preference is presented. In addition, this article discusses financial influences on the business cycle. According to Hyman P. Minsky (1919-1996), the U.S. financial system amplifies economic upturns and downturns and widespread financial difficulties cause or accelerate the upper turning point. However, in countries with extensive stock and real estate markets, another financial influence seems to be possible today: intensive speculation slows down the upturn because the enormous amounts of money that are used to speculate worsen the lending conditions of investing firms.
