Abstract

This paper tests empirically the well-known Goodwin’s ‘growth cycle’ disaggregated models, using data from the symmetric input-output table of the Greek economy for the year 1988. It is found that from qualitative as well as quantitative point of view, both models are not adequate to describe the long-run workers’ share-employment rate trajectories of the Greek economy. However, in the medium-run analysis the evidence presented here are more encouraging: at qualitative level, one of the two Goodwin’s models is found to be adequate to describe the dynamic behavior of the workers’ share and employment rate.
