This is determined from the outside of the model. To observe the way this is determined externally, one could fix M, then determine the rate of interest.

This concept requires a special form of the supply of labor curve. During the debate between Keynes and Hawtrey, Keynes asked Pigou to explain the nature of the supply of labor function.
