## Prof. Hicks tries to provide a more adequate explanation of trade cycles by combining the multiplier and acceleration principles. According to him, “the theory of

Hicks's Trade Cycle Back John Hicks (1950) is credited for trying to reveal proper macroeconomic cycles in a linear multiplier accelerator model by essentially aiming for unstable oscillations and adding floors and ceilings to constrain them. The Hicks’ Theory of Business Cycles (Explained With Diagrams)! Hicks put forward a complete theory of business cycles based on the interaction between the multiplier and accelerator by choosing certain values of marginal propensity to consume (c) and capital-output ratio (v) which he thinks are representative of the real world situation. Prof. Hicks has formulated his theory of trade cycles around the principle of the multiple-accelerator interaction. According to him, cyclical fluctuations are movements of the system above and below the rising trend line. Thus the growth path of the economy is characterised by cyclical fluctuations. His book Value and Capital (1939) significantly extended general-equilibrium and value theory. The compensated demand function is named the Hicksian demand function in memory of him. In 1972 he received the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences (jointly) for his pioneering contributions to general equilibrium theory and welfare theory.

### Product Life Cycle Theory. Raymond Vernon, a Harvard Business School professor, developed the product life cycle theory A modern, firm-based international trade theory that states that a product life cycle has three distinct stages: (1) new product, (2) maturing product, and (3) standardized product. in the 1960s. The theory, originating in the

The Hicksian explanation of the phenomenon of trade cycles was highly mechanical and in the real world, movements do not take place so mechanically as has been depicted by Hicks. Therefore, Hicks’ theory is regarded as inadequate as it fails to stress the psychological forces arising from future uncertainty and expectations which play an important part in the dynamic capitalist economy. In this way, Hicks’ model of the trade cycle represents an important step towards integrating a theory of cyclical fluctuations with the factors of economic expansion. He bases his model on the saving-investment relation, the acceleration principle and Harrod’s notion of the cycle as a problem of an expanding economy. Hicks put forward a complete theory of business cycles based on the interaction between the multiplier and accelerator by choosing certain values of marginal propensity to consume (c) and capital- output ratio (v) which he thinks are representative of the real world situation. The Hicks theory of trade cycle is associated with long-run growth trend and he argued that investment should be looked upon as a function of changes in output as a whole and shouldn’t be looked upon as a function of consumption alone as in Samuelson model. The Hicksian theory of trade cycle is based on the following assumptions: (1) Hicks assumes a progressive economy in which autonomous investment increases at a constant rate so that the system remains in a moving equilibrium.
