The Classical view is that LRAS is inelastic. This has important implications.

The classical view suggests that real GDP is determined by supply-side factors – the level of investment, the level of capital and the productivity of labour etc. Classical economists suggest that in the long-term, an increase in aggregate demand (faster than growth in LRAS), will just cause inflation and will not increase real GDP.
