Business Savings and the Macroeconomic Distribution of Income : The "Monopoly Capitalism" Saving Function


  • Pitelis, Christos N


The idea that different types of income - classes of income recipients will have different patterns of savings-consumption behaviour, has assumed a prominent position among economic theorists throughout the years. Recent theorising however, does not support this biew. This effectively raises the issue of the nature of the savings function under conditions of monopoly capitalism ; and this problem we try to tackle in this paper.
