Growth and stability in a model with Pasinettian saving behaviour and neoclassical technology
We analyse a Kaldor–Pasinetti two-class model of growth and distribution in which fiscal activity is explicitly introduced along the lines of Pasinetti (‘Ricardian Debt/Taxation Equivalence in the Kaldor Theory of Profits and Income Distribution’, Cambridge Journal of Economics, Vol. 13 (1989), pp. 25–36). Following the approach of Darity (‘A Simple Analytics of Neo-Ricardian Growth and Distribution’, American Economic Review, Vol. 71 (1981), pp. 978–993) the model is reduced to a dynamic system where the Cambridge equation is one of the possible steady-state solutions. The conditions for its local stability are studied and a numerical example is presented. The anti-dual case is more likely to occur in order to guarantee the local stability of the Cambridge equation.
