Profit Sharing and its Effect on Income Distribution and Output: A Kaleckian Approach

Abstract

This paper investigates the effect of profit sharing on the economy by using a Kaleckian model. Unlike exiting studies, we endogenize the profit share. Our analysis shows that if the size of the productivity-enhancing effect of profit sharing is small, profit sharing decreases the equilibrium rate of capacity utilization whereas if the size is large, profit sharing increases the equilibrium rate of capacity utilization.
