Principal agent, incomplete information, informational asymmetries, non-clearing markets, these are some of the general topics that describe the New Keynesian paradigm. Although accepted and respected in academia, the results of the New Keynesian paradigm are different from the Neo and New Classical traditions. The outcomes generated by New Keynesians challenge mainstream by undermining the general equilibrium vision of markets. Following almost the same methodology of Neoclassical economics, New Keynesians undermine the New Classical foundations while destroying the Neoclassical micro-foundations by showing that markets work different from what mainstream explains. In what follows the task will be to present, analyze and criticize in general terms the New Keynesian paradigm and its manifestation in financial market models.
