Abstract

A model of cumulative causation is extended to incorporate endogenous structural change. This is achieved via the use of a non-linear feedback of the growth rate on to the income elasticity of demand for exports. The result is a model that, under certain conditions, exhibits chaotic switches between growth eras. Such dynamics are in keeping with the view of the growth process that emerges from the Marx-Myrdal-Kaldor tradition.
