Growth and Distribution

Spring 2021

Taught By: Ettore Gallo

Section: A

CRN: 8437

Credits: 4

Starting from the empirical development of income distribution and economic growth in major OECD countries, students will learn how distribution and growth issues are treated in different economic paradigms. First, the course develops a comprehensive overview of the main theoretical approaches, introducing students to Classical, Neoclassical and Post-Keynesian theories of distribution and growth. In doing so, the role of effective demand is discussed in depth, as well as the effects of changes in the functional distribution of income on economic growth. In the second part of the course, students will be required to apply the theories learned in class to understand growth and distribution patterns in advanced capitalist economies over the last five decades.
