Dalla rendita materiale alla rendita immateriale: continuità o rottura teorica?
[From material rent to immaterial rent: continuity or theoretical rupture?]


  • Lucarelli, Stefano
  • Mazza, Jacopo


In this paper we will try to represent in mathematical form some of the characteristics of a Post-Fordist economic system. In particular, we will focus on the theory of distribution, and on the role of income. We will try to identify the process that led to the crisis of Fordism by modifiyng the Ricardian framework presented in Pasinetti 1966. Rent in Fordist system of production is linked to the diminishing returns. In Post-Fordist production process we will assume a law of formation of (immaterial) rent related to increasing returns .
