In the opposite case, when savings at full employment are insufficient to secure the growth of output capacity that is capable of increasing the volume of employment in line with the growth of the effective labour force (after allowing for labour-saving technical progress), there will be a tendency for effective demand to be excessive, resulting in inflationary pressures and over-full employment.
