56 Marxian Economists and the Great Depression 15 Preobrazhensky's explanation of the crisis hinged on the proposition that disproportionalities had become much more serious in the new, monopoly, stage of capitalism. Under competitive conditions resources could be moved quickly from one branch of the economy to another through the stimulus of the price mechanism, and the general level of output responded rapidly to increases in aggregate demand. In monopoly capitalism, however, resource mobility was impeded and demand fluctuations had asymmetrical effects: output fell when demand decreased, but an increase in demand raised prices rather than production.
