Post-Keynesian Macrodynamics and Path-Dependent Growth
AbstractThis paper discusses the treatment of growth as a path-dependent process in Post-Keynesian macrodynamics. A synthetic Post-Keynesian growth model is used to demonstrate the ways in which growth can be described as path dependent in the Post-Keynesian tradition. Recent developments in neoclassical endogenous growth theory are then discussed, with a view to highlighting the sense in which these developments encroach on the Post-Keynesian treatment of growth as demand-led and path-dependent. Finally, the paper reflects on the pros and cons of these neoclassical developments for the future of Post-Keynesian macrodynamics.
