Wage price flexibility Classical economist believed in full employment situation In case of unemployment, a general wage cut in money wage to the full employment situation  Demand of labour < supply of labour  Demand falls » fall in demand of labour  Fall in wage rate » rise in demand of labour  Unemployment removed » full employment
  • 7. Labour market equilibrium Demand & supply of labour is function of wage rate Demand for labour is decreasing function of wage rate Supply of labour is increasing function of wage rate
  • 8. Full Employment Full employment refers to that situation in which at a given level of real wage demand of labour is equal to the available supply of labour. All those people get employment who are willing to work at prevailing wage rate Demand of labour = Supply of labour
  • 9. Determination of employment and output Factors of production: P = f{land,labour,capital,technology} In short run,supply of labour increases therefore production will increased Law of diminishing return: Output increases less propotionately with employment
