The Kaleckian Analysis and the New Mellinium
AbstractThis paper commemorates the centenary of Kalecki's birth through a consideration of how Kalecki's macroeconomic analysis of capitalist economies should be adapted in light of changes in such economies over the fifty years since the major elements of Kalecki's analysis of capitalism were put into place. The main elements of Kalecki's analysis, in terms of the key assumptions which he made, are outlined, and how well these assumptions have survived is discussed. The next three sections consider globalisation, the growth in the importance of financial markets and the relationship between the real and the financial sectors, and the changing relationship between workers and business (and the associated changes in industrial relations practice and law) as areas where there have been major changes in the past three decades and where Kalecki's analysis may need to be modified to encapsulate those changes.
