Post-Keynesian Theory of Distribution in the Long Run

Neri Salvadori ()

Chapter 9 in Nicholas Kaldor and Mainstream Economics, 1991, pp 164-189 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract As is well known, the post-Keynesian theory of distribution was generated during the 1950s in Cambridge (Cambridgeshire). The first formal presentation was given in a seminal paper in 1956 by Kaldor. After that Kaldor utilized this theory in formalizing several growth models (Kaldor, 1957,1961; Kaldor and Mirrlees, 1962) in order to provide a solution to Harrod’s problem on the convergence of the ‘warranted’ growth rate to the ‘natural’ growth rate. After 1966 Kaldor did not return to the post-Keynesian theory of distribution except to clarify the origins of the theory (Kaldor, 1978, 1980).
