He also notes the connection between firms' behaviour in labour market and the disequilibrium in the goods market: "Not being able to sell all they want, they cannot employ all they want" (p.

The conditions for neutrality will be discussed below. This is a real-time intertemporal analysis, showing how the price level changes from week to week, rather than the a-temporal 'stability' analysis that examines the forces that determine the price level within each week. This is a necessary, but not sufficient, condition for neutrality.
