Distribution and Growth in an Economy with Heterogeneous Capital and Excess Capacity

Author

  • Mariolis, Theodore

Abstract

In a world of heterogeneous capital the aggregate capital-capacity ratio can change in a complicated way as the real wage rate changes and, therefore, nothing useful can be said, a priori, about the relationships between the real wage rate (or the aggregate profit share), the degree of capacity utilization and the rates of profit, capital accumulation and interest.
