Economic theory

Term for the mutual dependence and influence of economic variables. Macroeconomic Keynesian and New Keynesian total models are mostly completely interdependent economic systems that cannot be solved recursively, but only simultaneously. This complete macroeconomic interdependence, on the other hand, no longer applies in neoclassical models with complete wage and price flexibility, since, due to a model dichotomy, processes in the monetary sector cannot encroach on the real sector and thus the equilibrium values ​​of the real sector are independent of changes in the nominal money supply.

See also total analysis, total analysis of open economies, neoclassics, dichotomy of money.

Decision theory

1. Factual interdependence (horizontal interdependence): The interrelationships between different decision-making fields in a company when considering a point in time.
