Neoclassical Growth Theory and Heterodox Growth Theory: Opportunities For and Obstacles To Greater Engagement
AbstractThis paper explores the possibilities for and likely impediments to greater engagement between neoclassical and heterodox growth theorists. Simple structural models are used to identify the essential “mechanics” of the growth process in both the neoclassical and heterodox traditions, and these are shown to point to important areas of theoretical overlap and even observational equivalence. It is argued, however, that the resultant opportunities for greater engagement between growth theorists are tempered by a number of obstacles, that are methodological, rhetorical and sociological in nature.
