to start
Dennis
to start with your question i think we have to break it down into key words, and they effective demand ,inflation and real wages ... Ok when we say demand is effective we mean the demand is backed up by capital .. it is backed up by the ability to pay for the good/commodity demanded for
Dennis
in other hand inflation is the persistent rise of goods and services in and particular country's economy
Dennis
so what is real wages it means the amount paid to labour for a particular work done
Dennis
money wage is the money/capital paid to a worker
Dennis
knowing this terms you can be able to answer your question....
