S. demand growth for an extended period of time. This “consumer age” largely coincided with the Great Moderation period from the mid-1980s through 2007, and the authors propose that strong consumption demand contributed to the relatively stable macroeconomic performance of the United States over these years. Cynamon and Fazzari also explore the underlying source of consumption and debt decisions, arguing that they are made in a social context. Psychological characteristics of individual choice and the influence of social reference groups contributed to what ultimately was revealed to be an unsustainable path for household finance.

The end of this period of demand generation marked the beginning of the Great Recession. The point of this brief historical summary is to make clear that rising demand is far from automatic. The fundamental Keynesian problem of demand-deficiency has been solved at different times by different and historically specific forces. When demand growth faltered, as in the 1970s or, more dramatically, the 1930s, the economy sputtered, and not just for a year or two. Even as mainstream forecasters are anxious to declare a more robust recovery from the Great Recession to be just around the corner, the source of the aggregate demand necessary to initiate significant growth remains a mystery.
