A Consumption-Growth Linear Relation: Comment
AbstractIn a recent article Hosoda analyzes the relation between per capita consumption and growth rate in a Sraffian scheme where capitalists and workers have different patterns of consumption. He claims that this relation can be increasing and that this "anomaly does not disappear even if we choose Sraffa's Standard commodity as a numeraire" (p. 336). By using a result obtained by Pasinetti the authors find that, even in the case considered by Hosoda, it is always possible to obtain a linear decreasing ratios between growth rate and consumption share in national income by evaluating quantities at the appropriate system of prices, those corresponding to the maximum rate of profit (Pasinetti's "standard prices").
