1.Prof Joseph Stiglitz is known as New Keynesian economist. The Keynesian theory presents the rational of structuralism as the basis of economic decisions and provides support for government involvement to maintain high levels of employment. … In contrast the Neoliberal theory  attributes the self-interest of individuals as the determinant of the level of employment.

2.The first welfare theorem says a competitive equilibrium is Pareto efficient: markets can yield efficient allocations. The second welfare theorem says that any Pareto efficient allocation can be obtained as an equilibrium provided one makes the ‘right’adjustment to income

3.The Washington Consensus is a set of ten economic policy prescriptions considered to constitute the “standard” reform package promoted for crisis-wracked developing countries by Washington, D.C.-based institutions such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank and United States Department of the Treasury

4.An externality is a cost or benefit caused by a producer that is not financially incurred or received by that producer. … The costs and benefits can be both private—to an individual or an organization—or social, meaning it can affect society as a whole.
