Once this is recognized, the Keynesian aggregate supply curve takes on a different interpretation from that which is given in introductory textbooks.

I appropriate a term, demand-constrained equilibrium, from literature developed in the 1970s by Jean Pascal Benassy (1975), Jacques Dreze (1975), and Edmond Malinvaud (1977). Although fixed-price models with rationing of the kind studied by these authors are sometimes called demand-constrained equilibria, that is not what I mean here.
