Abstract: Throughout this article we try to evaluate the theoretical robustness of the so-called New Theorem of Pasinetti, according to which in an economy in which the differentiation between the propensities to save from the profits and the salaries is due to the nature of the business income, not the affiliation to a specific social class; the rate of profit along the Golden Age growth path is independent of workers 'propensity to save, being determined by the firms' profit retention coefficient, by the fraction of the investment firms wish to finance with third-party resources and by the natural rate growth. JEL Classification: E11; E12; G11; O42.
