Kaleckian Models of Growth in a Stock-Flow Monetary Framework: A Neo-Kaldorian Model
AbstractThis paper presents a simple growth model grounded in a stock-flow monetary accounting framework. The framework ensures that all stocks and flows are accounted for and that the real and financial sides of the economy are coherent with one another. Credit, money, equities, and stocks of real capital link periods of time with one another in articulated sequences. Wealth is allocated between assets on Tobinesque principles but no equilibrium condition is necessary to bring the "demand" for money into equivalence with its "supply." Growth and profit rates, as well as valuation, debt, and capacity utilization ratios, are analysed using simulations in which a growing economy is assumed to be shocked by changes in interest rates liquidity preference, real wages, and the parameters that determine how firms finance investment.
