An Intertemporal Pasinettian Model with Government Sector
This paper analyses the relevance of the Cambridge equation in the presence of government when the assumption of fixed savings is relaxed. We consider an intertemporal representative agent model with Pasinettian features. The results are: (i) the equilibrium distribution of income between wages and profits, as stated by the Cambridge equation, is not affected by the occurrence of sustained deficits or surpluses, (ii) the rate of profit is not determined by the Cambridge equation, and (iii) only taxation on profits affects the profit rate and, as a consequence, capital accumulation, wages, and output.
