TECHNOLOGICAL PROGRESS, INCOME DISTRIBUTION AND CAPACITY UTILISATION: A COMPUTER SIMULATION-BASED ANALYSIS

Fabio Hideki Ono and José Luís Oreiro ()

Abstract: The paper presents a post-keynesian growth model in which (i) the mark-up rate varies in the long-term due to a misalignment between the actual rate and the 'desired' profit rate; and (ii) the capital-output ratio is not necessarily constant, on the contrary it may shift as a result of the technological progress, which according the Harrod's typology can be neutral, capital saving or capital intensive. We demonstrate that the economic stability is only reached if the technological progress is neutral or capital intensive and the investiment is susceptible to fluctuations in the mark-up rate. After undergoing computer simulations, we noticed that an endogenous transition from a wage-led to a profit-led accumulation regime is feasible. Furthermore, we identified a tendency to the stabilization of the profit rate, conditioned to a high savings out of profits ratio.
