Teorie circolari e teorie verticali della dinamica economica strutturale: verso uno schema analitico di carattere generale
This paper argues that the analytical representation of economic structure is a fundamental element in understanding the dynamics of economic systems, even more today in the case of modern economies affected by deep transformations of technological knowledge (the so-called, knowledge-based economies). Starting from the examination of Leontief and Pasinetti model of production, an ideal theory of structural economic dynamics is proposed. The essential features of this “ideal” model are the use of multi-sector models, the adoption of methods of decomposition, the relevance of technical progress, the central role of learning processes, the consideration of uneven growth, the study of normative conditions of equilibrium. This “ideal” model of structural economic dynamics aims to outline a general conceptual framework in which specific theories may be considered as ad hoc analytical structures a linkage between historical facts and theoretical analysis.
