Abstract

In a stock-flow consistent neo-Kaleckian growth-model, we endogenize the dividend rate and debt-level in the long run and investigate the possibility of multiple equilibria and instability in the economy. We find that the economy is in a wage-led demand and debt-burdened growth regime. However, both debt-led and debt-burdened demand regimes are possible. In some instances, the speed of the adjustment parameter related to the dividend dynamics plays a crucial role in stabilizing the economy. Otherwise, the economy may lose its stability and gives birth to limit cycles. A significant rise in the interest rate may cause instability in the economy.
