Intra-capitalist Conflicts, Monetary Policy and Income Distribution
This paper investigates Marx's monetary analysis of the role of the interest rate in the distribution of surplus-value. It is argued that Marx allowed the interest rate to directly influence the distribution of surplus-value between enterprise profit and interest. Moreover, he thought the interest rate to be subject to the conflict between industrial and money capitalists. Recent developments in Sraffian and neo-Marxian literature provide the foundations for a Marxian analytical framework that allows intra-capitalist conflict, monetary policy and the interest rate to affect the intra-capitalist and the inter-class income distribution.
