The chapter concludes by introducing the standard “New Keynesian” dynamic stochastic equilibrium model, emphasizing the ways in which it departs from the Wicksell-Keynes-Hayek connection. In particular, the chapter focuses on the absence of the problem of intertemporal coordination, central to the Wicksell-Keynes-Hayek story, from the New Keynesian model. The chapter then relates this issue to the larger problem of integrating time into general equilibrium models, a point raised during, but largely obscured by, the protracted and often acrimonious debates of the Cambridge Capital Controversies. The chapter thus concludes by suggesting a Wicksell-Keynes-Hayek research agenda focusing on disequilibrium dynamics, and the central role of money in permitting such out-of-equilibrium processes.
