The Two-Sector Von Thünen Original Marginal Productivity Model Of Capital; And Beyond

Author

  • Erkko Etula

Abstract

This article considers a two-sector model of scalar capital from the perspectives of smoothly differentiable neoclassical technologies and also non-differentiable technologies based on discrete alternative Leontief-Sraffa techniques. The analysis shows that in these Thünen-like scenarios without joint production the real wage and the interest rate are necessarily in an inverse Ricardian tradeoff. This complements the findings of Samuelson and Etula (2006 , Japan and the World Economy, 18, pp. 331-356) and completes the analysis of single homogeneous scalar capital.
