Abstract

The evolution of the rate of profit reflects both changes in income distribution and technical conditions of production. The purpose of this paper is to present estimates of the rate of profit for the Greek economy using input-output data spanning the period 1988-1997 and, at the same time, to decompose the evolution of the rate of profit to its constituent components. These estimations are carried out in terms of (i) market prices; (ii) labour values; and (iii) prices of production.
