We tackle the issue of the possible instability of the Kaleckian distribution and growth model. Distinguishing between Keynesian and Harrodian instability, we review various mechanisms that have been proposed by critics of the Kaleckian model to tame Harrodian instability while bringing back the rate of utilisation to its normal rate. We find that the mechanisms that have been suggested are far from convincing. Therefore, we conclude that it may be premature for the critics of the Kaleckian model to dismiss the endogeneity of the rate of capacity utilisation in long-run growth equilibrium.
