Abstract
This paper incorporates the BhaduriMarglin accumulation function in Goodwin’s growth cycle model. It seems that, a priori, nothing unambiguous can be said about the dynamic behaviour of that extended system, since it depends crucially on two separate factors: (i) the form of the accumulation function; and (ii) the degree of capital heterogeneity.
