The stock market crash and the Great Depression inspired Keynes' ideas for a better economic system.
Keynesian economics came to be known as the mixed economy.

This means that it is a blend of command and free enterprise economies.

> What does this cartoon say about the free enterprise economy?

> How does Keynesian economics differ?
This cartoon shows how the free enterprise economic system consists of "boom" and "bust" periods in a cycle (business cycle). It is also saying that eventually there will be a period of "bust" in the economy that the country will not be able to pull out of. This is caused by the lack of government control in the economy.
Keynesian economics differ from the free enterprise systems because in Keynesian economics the government has a responsibility to control the business cycle. According to Keynes there should be little flux in the economy. The government raises and lowers interest rates and taxes in order to do this.
