Example text

Hence a small upward deviation in consumer demand from the equilibrium proportions will lead to a simultaneous acceleration of growth in both sectors, while a downward deviation of consumer demand will produce deceleration in both sectors. Mark Blaug is among those who have shown that Marx's extended production equilibrium is therefore analogous to Harrod's warranted rate of growth where any deviation of the savings ratio from that required for the warranted rate of growth will produce a growing departure from it.

Harrod distinguishes between the warranted and the natural rates of growth. e. between ex ante aggregate demand and supply. It is the equilibrium rate in its proper sense. The natural rate is instead the potential growth rate of the economy. Eltis seems to define the equilibrium rate as the one which equalizes gw to gn. Harrod said that one can concentrate on the gw obtainable in conditions of full employment, and called it 'ideal'. Joan Robinson called it the golden age rate of growth. Eltis's criticism that such a steady growth equilibrium requires a very peculiar type of technical progress (which should be Harrodneutral and so on) is of course quite correct; and it is probably correct what he says about the capital augmenting bias of the information technologies.

The reduction in the gross savings rate was instead much lower (about 14 per cent). Hence, c should have risen. Of course, to be correct I should have used the net savings rate. But I do not have reliable data. I do not want to make too much of these calculations. I have offered them as a mere source of doubt and as a reminder that the neutrality of technical progress is to be measured not at the sectoral level, where it may appear as capital-augmenting, but at the aggregate level, where it may turn out to be Harrod-neutral.
