A Post-Keynesian Model of Accumulation with a Minskyan Financial Structure
Minsky's theory of financial instability is a strong alternative to neoclassical theory. Many Post-Keynesian authors use this analysis in order to elaborate models that give rise to crises or business cycles. Nevertheless, none of them has directly linked growth and financial structure. This article proposes a simple macroeconomic model linking the accumulation of capital and the state of the financial structure as defined by Minsky. The analysis shows how a capitalist economy may become financially fragile, and it suggests that instability is apt to be the rule.
