The investment-profit nexus in an era of financialisation and globalisation. A marxist perspective
During the past decades, the link between profits and domestic investment weakened in the biggest high-income economies. This contribution explores this relaxation of the profits-investment nexus in a Marxist profit-centred perspective. Focusing on the impact of the origins and the uses of profits, we study the investment behaviour of non-financial corporations in relation to their profits at the macro level since 1980, a period marked by financialisation and globalisation. We contrast three competing hypotheses – the Revenge of the Rentiers, the Financial-turn of Accumulation and Globalisation – and test them through a macro panel data analysis for France, Germany, Italy, Japan, United-Kingdom and United States over the period 1980-2012.
