Abstract

In this paper we have taken issue with those Marxian and post-Keynesian views which neglect the broad similarities between Marx’s economics and post-Keynesian approaches in the field of money, credit and the rate of interest. Starting from the older observations on the common ground of Marx’s and Keynes’s views in the fields mentioned above, we have shown that Marx’s economics cannot only be seen as one of the sources of post-Keynesian economics because his theory of capitalist reproduction has had a major impact on Kalecki’s theory of effective demand, but also because his monetary economics fit quite well into the post-Keynesian research programme of a monetary theory of production.
