Example text

The Goodwin model In analytical terms the most elegant expression of these dynamics in the Classical/Marxian literature is Richard Goodwin’s model of the capitalist labor market (Goodwin, 1967). Denoting employment by N and the potential labor force by L, Goodwin assumes that the rate of change in the wage per worker, w, will be proportional to the excess of the employment rate e = N/L over an institutionally given level e0 , at which the real wage would not change. 1) This formulation has several shortcomings.

If capitalism were to follow a path of rising labor productivity and a stagnating real wage, it would rapidly face a revolutionary situation, in which workers, conscious of their ability to produce a high standard of living, and systematically frustrated in their efforts to participate in the fruits of high productivity, would insist on taking control of the productive system. Around 1860, as Marx was working on preparing Capital for publication, a tendency for real wages to rise in Britain, which he regarded as the bellwether of the capitalist nations, became apparent.

The inverse forces tend to correct a fall in the wage share as well over the long period, though Marx tended to put less emphasis on this implication of his analysis for obvious political reasons. The systematic explanation of wage movements both over the long period and over the business cycle is a key problem for the modern development of 38 Innovative capitalism and the distribution of income Classical and Marxian political economy. Despite the existence of a lot of research examining this problem in specific historical situations, the political and policy effectiveness of these ideas has been hobbled by the reluctance of the Classical school as a whole to acknowledge the pervasive positive effect of the accumulation of capital and periodic scarcity of labor-power on wages.
