    The reflections in this article stem from Andreatta’s 1958 analysis on Income distribution and capital accumulation, in the form of a stylized interpretation of his thought as a political economist. His theoretical analyses are reinterpreted with particular attention to the effects of innovation on income distribution and prices in relation to different types of markets. After the 1958 monograph Andreatta elaborates and publishes various writings with a focus on three main themes. The first theme regards how the choice of methods and the related inter-sectoral aspects of technology adopted in one sector influence the development of other sectors. The second theme, planning, is viewed especially in relation to developing countries. The third theme concerns that of the economics of research aimed at identifying new development strategies. From this analysis emerges an authoritative economist with a very eclectic post-Keynesian approach and without a priori preclusions of other theoretical approaches.
