  • Social positioning and the nature of money
    • Authors: Lawson; T.
      Pages: 961 - 996
      Abstract: The question of the nature of money is pursued drawing on results generated in the field of social ontology as well as on observations from history. The conception of the nature of money found in this manner to be the most sustainable is compared to various other prominent, if usually held to be mutually incompatible, theories.

  • Dark matter, black holes and old-fashioned exploitation: transnational
           corporations and the US economy
    • Authors: Ali; M.
      Pages: 997 - 1018
      Abstract: In advanced economies, foreign direct investment (FDI) is usually a two-way process, involving both inwards and outwards investment, often in the same industries. Why, then, is US FDI so profitable whilst FDI in the USA is conspicuous in its unprofitability? Using sectoral-based data from 1999 to 2005 to investigate this puzzle, I find that US-owned FDI (USDIA) demonstrates far higher returns particularly relative to foreign-owned direct investment in the USA (FDIUS) but also compared to all US-based industries (NIPA). FDIUS is the worst performing of all three portfolios, exhibiting the poorest and most volatile returns for the period examined. These results hold for both the aggregate non-financial data as well as for the ‘narrow measured value added’. For the period tested, US inwards FDI isn’t employment generating whereas US direct investment abroad produces the fastest gains in labour productivity, output, employment, investment expenditures and tax revenues. Whilst it is debatable that ‘dark matter’ or intangible proprietary assets drive superior relative returns to USDIA, labour exploitation appears to play a role. Increases in labour productivity coupled with declining wage shares for all three portfolios (especially pronounced for USDIA) suggest ‘race to bottom’ outcomes. A burgeoning aspect of this race is cross-border profit-shifting to minimise firms’ global tax burdens. I suspect but am unable to confirm that profits are being shifted overseas—vanishing into the ‘black holes’ of tax havens, transfer pricing and other modes of tax avoidance.

  • Surplus-producing labour as a capability: a Marxian contribution to
           Amartya Sens revival of classical political economy
    • Pages: 1019 - 1035
      Abstract: Labour is construed as an income-generating capacity or as creative activity in the capabilities approach. This rendition misses a vital capability that Marx articulates: labour as a potential to produce surplus. Accordingly, following Marx, I define labour as the ability, freedom and willingness to produce more than what labourers deem necessary to sustain themselves. I argue each has this capability and should willingly realise it in accordance with their ability. With this definition, additional questions arise as to who should appropriate the surplus or receive a portion of it. I contend that each, irrespective of their role in production, should have the capability to appropriate surplus, just as each should have the capability to claim and receive a portion of the surplus according to their needs. I finish by showing the prevalent normative framework of the capitalist economy, ‘equal rights and equal exchange’, is nothing other than exclusive rights (capabilities) and unequal exchange, which results in exploitation, now defined as a violation of capabilities equality. By contrast, I call for a non-exclusive, ‘radical equality’ à la Sen: no one is excluded from participating in or having access to any moment of this surplus economy, one that is non-exploitative and communal, as each capability is extended to each individual.

  • Recognition: applications in aged care work
    • Authors: Austen, S; Jefferson, T, Ong, R, Sharp, R, Lewin, G, Adams, V.
      Pages: 1037 - 1054
      Abstract: Detailed arguments about the importance of recognition were present in Adam Smith’s Theory of Moral Sentiments but received little attention in classical and neoclassical economics. However recognition is re-emerging as an important concept in social and economic research. In this study we consider the importance of recognition and misrecognition for a nuanced understanding of the motivation to undertake paid care work. We use survey and interview data from a mixed-methods study of the employment intentions of Australian women working in aged care to investigate links between recognition, wage rates and intentions to remain working in the sector. Our findings suggest that low wages convey misrecognition and that both wages and misrecognition have adverse implications for the future labour supply of aged care workers. We conclude by considering particular challenges faced by the aged care sector and its workers in redressing low wage rates.

  • 'Solvency rule and capital centralisation in a monetary union
    • Authors: Brancaccio, E; Fontana, G.
      Pages: 1055 - 1075
      Abstract: Brancaccio and Fontana (2013) have suggested that the central bank influences the solvency conditions of firms and households in the economic system. This ‘solvency rule’ is examined here within a stylised model of a monetary union characterised by different rates of accumulation and inflation across its two member countries. The rule highlights the existence of a relationship between the interest rate set by the central monetary authority and the allocation of ownership of existing physical capital among the member countries of the monetary union, i.e. the ‘rates of capital centralisation’. The paper also shows the nexus between solvency and government debt sustainability, and examines the implications of deflationary or currency devaluation policies for the solvency conditions.

  • How can we explain the persistence of the Great Recession? A balanced
           stability approach
    • Authors: Togati; T. D.
      Pages: 1077 - 1101
      Abstract: The Great Recession (GR) creates a stalemate in macroeconomics. On the one hand, standard approaches fail to account for its persistence in a credible way due to their implicit assumption that the economy is internally stable. On the other, heterodox approaches fail to regain consensus. While often correctly stressing that the roots of the GR lie not only in developments within the financial sector but also in a lack of aggregate demand, they fail to devise an alternative method for showing why this problem has arisen in a systematic way. This paper fills the gap by proposing a new framework called the ‘balanced stability approach’. Its specific contribution is to stress that the low demand problem is rooted in a wide range of structural changes which arise in the so-called ‘new economy’.

  • The consequences of fiscal stimulus on public debt: a historical
    • Authors: McCausland, W. D; Theodossiou, I.
      Pages: 1103 - 1116
      Abstract: The current policy agenda of neoclassical macroeconomics, as expressed within conservative political circles in the UK and European Union, is that fiscal contraction is the lever that can bring about recovery from the current economic downturn. Allegedly, the reason is that when business sees that the government balance sheet is improving—and public debt declining—there will be greater confidence in the country’s economic prospects, and this increased confidence will lead to higher investment. This in turn will lead to growth and the road to economic recovery. This study examines the impact of government stance on public debt for 11 OECD countries for which data on the relevant factors are available from 1881 to 2011. Contrary to traditional predictions, it turns out that over this long historical span, fiscal contractions deteriorated rather than improved public debt as a percentage of GDP. This implies that fiscal austerity exacerbates the lack of demand and deteriorates rather than enhances the prospects of economic recovery.

  • Kaldors 'technical progress function and Verdoorns law revisited
    • Authors: McCombie, J. S. L; Spreafico, M. R. M.
      Pages: 1117 - 1136
      Abstract: Kaldor put forward his technical progress function as an alternative to the neoclassical aggregate production function. It is shown that Verdoorn’s law is its empirical counterpart, although allowing for increasing returns to scale. However, both may be derived from an aggregate Cobb-Douglas production function. But aggregation problems and the Cambridge capital theory controversies have shown theoretically that aggregate production functions in all probability do not exist. Moreover, the only reason that estimations of ‘aggregate production functions’ give good results is the existence of an accounting identity. This article reconsiders the technical progress function and Verdoorn’s law, especially in the light of these problems. Nevertheless, it is shown that estimates of the law do, in fact, provide insights into the growth process very similar to those of Kaldor, but viewed from another perspective.

  • Rigidities through flexibility: flexible labour and the rise of management
    • Authors: Kleinknecht, A; Kwee, Z, Budyanto, L.
      Pages: 1137 - 1147
      Abstract: Judging from organisation-level survey data, we find that organisations employing high shares of flexible workers have higher shares of managers in their personnel. This is in line with earlier findings that Anglo-Saxon countries with deregulated labour markets have thicker management bureaucracies than countries with more regulated labour markets of the ‘Rhineland’ style. We argue that flexibility in labour markets (i.e. easier firing and higher labour turnover) damages trust, loyalty and commitment. This requires more management and control. Related research suggests that easy hire and fire is at the cost of organisational learning, knowledge accumulation and knowledge sharing, thus damaging innovation and labour productivity growth.

  • Rates of return on capital across the world: are they converging?
    • Authors: Chou, N.-T; Izyumov, A, Vahaly, J.
      Pages: 1149 - 1166
      Abstract: This article estimates levels and identifies trends in the profitability of capital in a broad sample of developed, developing and post-communist transition economies making up over 80% of global output. The underlying distributional and efficiency determinants of profitability are considered in the Marxian analytical framework. For the period of 1995–2007 leading to the Great Recession, our estimates indicate a trend towards convergence of national profit rates largely driven by the convergence of profitability in developing and transition economies. During this period, the level of profit rates in all groups of countries experienced growth with the global capital-weighted rate of profit increasing by approximately 50%. The main contributor to this growth in all groups of countries was the increase in average productivity of capital, measured by output-capital ratio. In developed and transition economies, the increase in profit shares of national income and the decline in the relative price of capital goods also contributed to profitability growth. In the same period for developing countries, profit shares and relative prices were relatively stable.

  • Elasticity of substitution and social conflict: a structuralist note on
           Pikettys Capital in the Twenty-first Century
    • Authors: Barbosa-Filho; N. H.
      Pages: 1167 - 1183
      Abstract: This paper presents a structuralist analysis of the elasticity of substitution between capital and labour, with an application to the US economy. The paper shows how the elasticity of substitution is an aggregated residual parameter, as well as how fluctuations of it can be explained in terms of technological, distributive, demographic and demand shocks. Then, based on a 2x2 dynamical model for the wage share of income and the employment rate, the paper analyses Thomas Piketty’s theoretical proposition that the functional distribution of income may not be stationary.

  • The autonomisation of abstract wealth: new insights on the labour theory
           of value
    • Authors: Rotta, T. N; Teixeira, R. A.
      Pages: 1185 - 1201
      Abstract: We theorise the forms of value in the Marxist system in a way that challenges the dominant tradition. The standard procedure has been to read Marx’s Capital as an analysis that begins at a high level of abstraction and moves towards more concrete concepts. Our alternative approach posits that the forms of value in the Marxist system evolve from more concrete towards more abstract forms of wealth that increasingly separate from and obscure labour exploitation. Our procedure therefore replaces the dominant interpretation of ‘successive approximations’ employed by most scholars. We develop a broader account of Marx’s project alongside textual evidence retrieved from many of his writings. We also provide a new way to incorporate the monetary, financial and rentier forms of wealth into Marx’s labour value theory. The proposed alternative approach can potentially open a research agenda on the contemporaneous dynamics of abstract and concrete forms of wealth in advanced capitalism.

  • Coases choice of methodology
    • Authors: Bertrand; E.
      Pages: 1203 - 1227
      Abstract: This paper examines the nature of Ronald H. Coase’s realism by considering the relationship between theories and facts in his methodology. I focus especially on Coase’s criticisms of Friedman’s 1953 essay, as set out in a lecture published in 1982. It is shown that in developing his argument, Coase applies his institutional economics to address the question of how economists, operating within a regulated market for ideas, choose their theories. He calls for realism in methodology and carries out an empirical study of economists’ choices. He explores how the profession is regulated and highlights how discourse impacts on the functioning of science. A key question addressed within this paper is: how can Coase maintain a sociological and rhetorical view of science without falling into relativism? I identify the different motives for theory choice that Coase considers and show that his answer is both institutional and epistemic. This helps to clarify the status of the empirical basis in Coase’s methodology and sheds new light on the nature of his realism. I conclude by carrying out a reflexive analysis of Coase’s text as a text that attempts to justify the methodology on which it is itself based.

This article highlights the fact that Hicks’s peculiar perspective on the economic agent constitutes the sub-structure underlying his research path, and the common premise to his theories of markets, liquidity, capital, and risk. Hicks’s theory of the agent was intended to address the factual role of non-measurable risk (i.e. learning management) and was primarily concerned with the price and wealth effects that the transaction costs (costs of learning and moving) entail for learning-induced behaviours.
