• The Lehman Sisters hypothesis
• Authors: van Staveren; I.
Pages: 995 - 1014
Abstract: This article explores the Lehman Sisters hypothesis. It reviews empirical literature about gender differences in behavioural, experimental and neuro-economics as well as in other fields of behavioural research. It discusses gender differences along three dimensions of financial behaviour: risk aversion and response to uncertainty, ethics and moral attitudes, and leadership. The article argues that gender stereotypes are influential in finance, constraining women to achieve top positions in banking and sustaining a strong masculine culture. At the same time the analysis indicates that the few women who make it to the top tend to perform on average better than men, in particular under uncertainty. This is explained by a combination of gender beliefs, gender stereotypes, gender identity and flexible biological processes. Although further research is necessary, the existing empirical literature would support a plea for having more rather than fewer women in financial trade, risk management and at the top of the financial sector.

• The Great Recession and the bulimia of US consumers: deep causes and
possible ways out
• Authors: Bartolini, S; Bonatti, L, Sarracino, F.
Pages: 1015 - 1042
Abstract: This paper focuses on the apparent bulimia of US consumers and its role in the recent crisis. We seek to show how various characteristics of American society and the US economy are related to this phenomenon. We illustrate some structural features of the US economy and public policies that may have created a difference, in terms of patterns of consumption and market participation, between the USA and continental Europe. We then present some explanations of US hyperconsumerism put forward by psychologists and sociologists, thus relating this phenomenon to the decline in subjective well-being and social capital documented in the USA. We also discuss how the negative endogenous growth paradigm may help to account for it. Finally, we review the debate on the US policy agenda by underlining some weaknesses in the two politically more realistic options and by outlining a third policy strategy, which is possibly preferable for people’s long-term well-being.

• Thorstein Veblen on credit and economic crises
• Authors: Davanzati, G. F; Pacella, A.
Pages: 1043 - 1061
Abstract: The aim of this paper is to provide an interpretation of Veblen’s theory of economic crises, based on the view that banking policy is a major factor in generating crises. It will be shown that, in Veblen’s thought, crises may emerge due to the banking system’s non-accommodating behaviour according to the following sequence: as firms are not homogeneous, the credit system spontaneously tends to help bigger firms increase in size, due to the increase in their capital turnover, which allows them to produce and sell before their competitors. This produces two effects: (i) the reduction in profits of the smaller firms (or their bankruptcy) generates a decline of employment and output while, at the same time, (ii) the increase in the industrial concentration ratio produces a rise in prices and a consequent drop in real wages. This in turn reduces total demand for consumption goods, thus worsening entrepreneurs’ expectations and having an adverse effect on production and investment by firms.

• What is capital? Economists and sociologists have changed its meaning:
should it be changed back?
• Authors: Hodgson; G. M.
Pages: 1063 - 1086
Abstract: This article traces the historical usages of the term capital and the explosion of different types of supposed ‘capital’ in the twentieth century, including ‘human capital’ and ‘social capital’. In medieval and early modern times, capital meant money investable or invested in business. This meaning persists in business circles today. In contrast, Adam Smith treated physical assets, machines and people as ‘capital’ and this different usage has dominated economics since. The pre-Smithian meaning referred to money or other saleable assets that could be used as collateral. This article questions the change in meaning by economists and sociologists and highlights the importance of collateralisable property for capitalism. ‘Human capital’ can only be collateral if the humans involved are slaves. ‘Social capital’ can never be used as collateral and it is not even owned. These important issues are masked by the broadened notion of ‘capital’. Given the conceptual problems involved, economists and sociologists should consider returning to the pre-Smithian and surviving business usage of the term.

• Do labour supply and demand curves exist?
• Authors: Fleetwood; S.
Pages: 1087 - 1113
Abstract: The objective of this paper is to show that circumstantial and empirical evidence for the existence of labour supply and demand curves is at best inconclusive and at worst casts doubt on their existence. Because virtually all orthodox models of labour markets, simple and complex, are built upon the foundation stones of labour supply and demand curves, these models lack empirically supported foundations. Orthodox labour economists must, therefore, either provide stronger evidence or stop using labour supply and demand curves as the foundation stones of their models. The conclusion discusses implications for future orthodox and heterodox labour economics.

• Ludwig Lachmann on expectations in his early writings: an aborted
theory?
• Authors: Sauce; L.
Pages: 1115 - 1131
Abstract: This article investigates how Ludwig Lachmann introduced the question of the endogenous formation of expectations in his 1943 and 1945 papers, a theoretical issue that remained at the heart of his research program throughout his career. After presenting the methodological and theoretical characteristics of the question he identified in 1943, I consider the embryonic causal analysis of expectations he tried to develop in 1945 by borrowing from Oskar Lange’s concept of the practical range. I then expose the methodological and theoretical flaws that may explain why he did not develop this analysis further in his subsequent works. Despite these flaws, I show that some insights of his aborted theory may nevertheless be of some usefulness to explain the causes of economic fluctuations. A possible reorientation of how to tackle the question of expectations is proposed in the conclusion.

• Non-Bayesian decision theory ahead of its time: the case of G. L. S.
Shackle
• Authors: Zappia; C.
Pages: 1133 - 1154
Abstract: This article deals with the reception of George L. S. Shackle’s volume Expectation in Economics, introducing a unique attempt to discard the probability framework in the investigation of behaviour under uncertainty. Through a fresh reading of the textual evidence, including correspondence held at Cambridge University Library, the article assesses why decision theorists’ interest in Shackle’s theory, substantial during the 1950s, faded away in the early 1960s. The article argues that, apart from Shackle’s refusal to comprehend that his critics were under the influence of a new subjective probability perspective, a major explanation of the dismissal of his work stays in Shackle’s stance not to establish a collaborative link with those critics who showed a positive attitude towards his theory. The article shows, though, that the discussion between Shackle and his critics hinged on a number of topics that are still crucial to the current developments of decision theory.

• On the sustainability of external debt: is debt relief enough?
• Authors: Vaggi, G; Prizzon, A.
Pages: 1155 - 1169
Abstract: Elaborating on Pasinetti (1998), the ‘geometry of debt sustainability’ (GDS) represents an analytical tool for the analysis of the long term sustainability of foreign debt. The paper focuses on debt sustainability in low-income countries, which face several major challenges simultaneously: achieving economic growth, consolidating human development goals and meeting regular debt service payments. The GDS reveals how the ‘structural’ aspect of debt sustainability—as indicated by trends in the non-interest current account—is closely interlinked with sustainability from a ‘financial’ point of view—as indicated by the relationship between the growth and the interest rate. The GDS shows why both debt cancellation and additional aid are necessary to give indebted low-income economies a chance to improve their long term economic viability.

• Is net stock issuance relevant to capital formation? Comparing
heterodox models of firm-level capital expenditures across the advanced
and largest developing economies
• Authors: Hecht; J.
Pages: 1171 - 1206
Abstract: Smith, Ricardo, Marx and Keynes never claimed that stock markets were critical funding conduits for a firm’s capital expenditures. While Adam Smith had a rather poor opinion of the joint-stock form of business organisation, classical economists generally saw accumulated profits as the primary source of funding for capital investment. Keynes famously remarked in the General Theory that the ‘capital investment needs of a nation’ would likely be ‘ill served’ by stock markets. Prior empirical studies of financialisation found a deleterious impact from stock buybacks on capital investment; however, they did not match buybacks against new stock issuances. Using an unbalanced panel of firms located in China, France, Germany, Great Britain, India, Japan and the USA from 1998 to 2008, classical, post-Keynesian and financialisation models of firm-level investment were specified and estimated across the seven economies as well as individual countries. Net stock issuance is found to have a positive impact on real investment when estimated across all models and observations. Between the classical and post-Keynesian models, profitability, internal and external finance, macroeconomic demand as well as net stock issuance were positively related to capital expenditures; capital intensity in the classical model exhibited a negative association across all countries. For the financialisation model, interest and dividend payments were inversely associated with capital expenditures but not consistently so for individual countries. Macroeconomic growth had a consistently positive impact for most advanced economies, affirming the critical role played by aggregate demand in heterodox theories of business investment.

• Is flexible labour good for innovation? Evidence from firm-level data
• Authors: Kleinknecht, A; van Schaik, F. N, Zhou, H.
Pages: 1207 - 1219
Abstract: Whether the use of flexible workers is damaging to innovation or not depends on the dominant innovation regime in a sector. In sectors with a ‘routinised’ innovation regime, high shares of low-paid temporary workers have a negative impact on the probability that firms invest in R&D. In sectors that tend towards a ‘garage business’ regime, however, flexibility has no impact. The two innovation regimes differ in the nature of their knowledge base: reliance on generally available knowledge or dependence on a firm’s historically accumulated knowledge base. Innovation in the latter regime benefits from longer job durations. Our results are consistent with findings in macro-level studies that coordinated market economies with rigid labour markets have higher labour productivity gains than liberalised market economies.

• Disability, job mismatch, earnings and job satisfaction in Australia
• Authors: Jones, M; Mavromaras, K, Sloane, P, Wei, Z.
Pages: 1221 - 1246
Abstract: We examine the relationship between disability, job mismatch, earnings and job satisfaction using panel estimation on data from the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) Survey (2001–08). While we do not find any relationship between work-limiting disability and overskilling, it appears that there is a positive relationship between work-limiting disability and overeducation, which is consistent with disability onset leading to downward occupational movement, at least in relative terms. We find a negative correlation between work-limiting disability and both earnings and job satisfaction. However, there is only evidence of a causal relationship in terms of the latter, where the impact of disability is found to be multifaceted.

• A transnational fast fashion industrial district: an analysis of the
• Authors: Ottati; G. D.
Pages: 1247 - 1274
Abstract: After World War II, Prato (in Italy) became known for the extraordinary development of its textile industry. The development was extraordinary due to its size and because it was based on small firms, the study of which contributed to the rediscovery of the Marshallian industrial district. In recent decades Prato has become increasingly known for the rise of the largest agglomeration in Italy of Chinese immigrants’ businesses specialised in fast fashion clothing. Despite the attention devoted to this phenomenon, how and why the Chinese in Prato were so successful remains somewhat of a mystery. This paper explores the case of the Chinese in Prato, considering first their influx into the district as subcontractors and then their transformation into final producers of pronto moda. The paper focuses on the causes of these immigrants’ exceptional development and on the possible consequences of this evolution for the future of Prato in the new global economy.

• A note on Piketty's Capital in the Twenty-First Century
• Authors: Rowthorn; R.
Pages: 1275 - 1284
Abstract: Thomas Piketty’s Capital documents long-term trends in income and wealth in advanced economies. It also provides a theoretical framework for analysing the past and projecting the future. Piketty argues that the ratio of wealth to national income is on an upward trend and that this is responsible for the rising income share of wealth-owners. This note accepts Piketty’s main empirical findings but questions his interpretation. The rising income share of wealth-owners is not due to the over-accumulation of capital, as he claims, but just the opposite. There has been too little real investment. The note also considers the long-term dynamics of Piketty’s model and explores the effect of modifying his assumptions about savings behaviour. Finally, it considers the implications of rising asset prices, which are documented by Piketty but are not adequately taken into account in his theoretical analysis or projection of future trends.

• A reply to Amitava Dutt: the role of aggregate demand in the long run
• Authors: Dumenil, G; Levy, D.
Pages: 1285 - 1292
Abstract: In an article in this journal, Amitava Dutt comments on our 1999 paper, ‘Being Keynesian in the Short Term and Classical in the Long Term: The Traverse to Classical Long-term Equilibrium’, contending that aggregate demand may affect the long-term equilibrium. We agree to some extent but contend that these mechanisms do not question the fundamental difference between the classical-Marxian perspective (in which u gravitates in the long term around $$\overline{u}$$ ) and the post-Keynesian perspective (in which the long-term equilibrium position of u depends on the level of aggregate demand). The basic controversy harks back to Harrod’s investment function, in which the only long-term equilibrium is u = $$\overline{u}$$ . We solve the problem of Harrodian instability in reference to the action of monetary authorities and governments. Dutt’s defence of the post-Keynesian investment function is unconvincing.
