  • The Apostles justice: Cambridge reflections on economic inequality from
           Moores Principia Ethica to Keyness General Theory (1903-36)
    • Authors: Donnini Maccio; D.
      Pages: 701 - 726
      Abstract: This article explores economic justice in the writings of the Cambridge authors G. L. Dickinson, G. Shove, R. Hawtrey, D. H. Robertson, H.O. Meredith, J. H. Bell and F. Ramsey, who were either members of the Apostles’ discussion society or, like Hugh Dalton, ‘lay’ followers of its philosophical leader, G. E. Moore. The article challenges the prevalent view depicting the Apostles as uninterested in social problems. Their analyses of economic inequality are reviewed in connection with the Marshallian tradition, the impact of Fabianism and J. M. Keynes’s views of social justice. Special attention is paid to some neglected aspects of Moore’s Principia Ethica, which were debated in the Society and influenced the Apostles’ social awareness. They believed that large inequalities were both unjust and inefficient, and, as Moore’s disciples, they rejected the hedonistic perspective and considered justice not as an end in itself but as a means to the Good.

  • Companies and markets: economic theories of the firm and a concept of
           companies as bargaining agencies
    • Authors: Spread; P.
      Pages: 727 - 753
      Abstract: The depiction of the firm in neoclassical theory in terms of a production function is widely recognised as unsatisfactory. Economists have sought to provide more realistic theories of the firm through attributing to them functions of minimisation of transaction costs, accommodation of bounded rationality, assembly of information, etc. These functions are seen as supplementary to their role as participants in a broadly neoclassical market framework. This paper suggests that the theories do nothing to increase the understanding of the firm; rather, they deepen the misconceptions that arise from the neoclassical model. The paper proposes a theory of companies as bargaining agencies meeting a viability condition in the context of situation-related consumer demand. The proposed concept integrates the important phenomena of technological innovation and distance fully into the concept of company operations.

  • The development of Chinas solar photovoltaic industry: why industrial
           policy failed
    • Authors: Chen; T.-J.
      Pages: 755 - 774
      Abstract: This article studies China’s central-local government relations in the formation and implementation of an industry policy. In China, the central government is responsible for policy formation and the local governments are responsible for policy implementation, where local governments are allowed ample flexibility in the ways to achieve the policy mandate. This arrangement is conducive to local competition, but there is no built-in mechanism in the system to regulate such competition. The system is defective in the execution of an industrial policy in that it fails to discipline the recipients of policy favours and to make efficient exit selections. Because local competition involves policy resources as well as economic resources, the outcome of competition is not necessarily consistent with the comparative advantage of the region. The more that policy is emphasised in industrial development, the more that competition tends to favour large and rich cities. After a certain period of hands-off local competition, the timing of which is unpredictable but will come when the industry runs into troubles, the central government holds the ultimate power to determine the winners. The central government typically picks the ‘large and strong’ firms as the winners, which are crowned as a national team and became eligible for further policy support. This institutional set-up produces a rapidly growing industry, which often results in over-capacity but not necessarily a competitive industry. I use the case of China’s solar photovoltaic industry to illustrate these points.

  • On equity markets, long-term decision making and performance metrics
    • Authors: Woods; J. E.
      Pages: 775 - 796
      Abstract: The 2012 Kay Review of UK Equity Markets and Long-term Decision Making confirmed that short-termism was a problem. Identifying asset managers as the dominant players in the investment chain, Mr Kay concluded that their appointment and monitoring was too often based on short-term relative performance and recommended an examination of the metrics employed. Using as conceptual framework the Keynes–Graham schema proposed by Woods in 2013, we demonstrate that the most commonly employed measure, the time-weighted rate of return, is inappropriate and inaccurate as a performance metric and should be replaced by the familiar, but generally ignored, money-weighted rate of return. Hitherto there have been three strands to the economics and finance literature on portfolio management, namely with reference to the efficient markets hypothesis, the selection of optimal portfolios in a mean–variance context using quadratic optimisation techniques and principal–agent issues that exist between portfolio managers and their clients. In this article, we initiate a new strand in the literature by focusing on the metric used to measure the performance of a portfolio manager, incidentally showing that our approach has immediate implications for the three existing strands.

  • Sub-Saharan Africas growth, South-South trade and the generalised
           balance-of-payments constraint
    • Authors: Bagnai, A; Rieber, A, Tran, T. A.-D.
      Pages: 797 - 820
      Abstract: Using the post-Keynesian balance-of-payments constrained growth approach, we investigate the recent increase in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) growth, focussing on the contribution of South-South trade. The model is estimated by panel co-integration on a sample of 20 low- and lower-middle-income SSA countries, using annual data from 1990 to 2008, and considering three partner areas: SSA itself, developing Asia and the rest of the world. The results show that in the past decade the balance-of-payments constraint of SSA has been relaxed. This shift has occurred through different channels of transmission: the other SSA countries contributed through the real growth effect, developing Asia through the market share effect and the rest of the world through the terms of trade effect. These results help reconcile puzzling evidence on the pattern of SSA external indebtedness and provide new insights on the role of ‘Asian drivers’ on SSA growth, as well as on the sustainability of SSA growth recovery.

  • Tax morale and prosocial behaviour: evidence from a Palestinian survey
    • Authors: Andriani; L.
      Pages: 821 - 841
      Abstract: The first empirical investigation is conducted into the relationship between prosocial behaviour and tax morale in the context of state capacity building as in the Palestinian Territories. We consider ‘public spirit’ (a positive attitude adopted by citizens for the benefit of the community) and associational activity (individuals’ engagement in voluntary activities) two major expressions of prosocial behaviour and estimate their impact on Palestinians’ ‘tax morale’ (intrinsic motivation to pay taxes). The empirical analysis employs a unique Palestinian public opinion survey conducted in 2007 in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. By using a bivariate probit model, we find that tax morale increases with public spirit but it is lower among Palestinians involved in associational activities. Predicted conditional probabilities indicate that public spirit has more impact when the respondent has low confidence in the institutions and in the rule of law. Finally, more public spirit is required for a self-employed person in order to deal with tax compliance than for a worker in the public sector, unless the worker in the public sector has lower confidence in the institutions and in the rule of law than the self-employed person.

  • Jobless growth in India: an investigation
    • Authors: Tejani; S.
      Pages: 843 - 870
      Abstract: This paper investigates the relationship between output growth and employment growth in India for the period 1978–2010 at the aggregate and sectoral levels. Using a Kaldorian framework of endogenous productivity growth, we find that Kaldor–Verdoorn effects in the economy have become more predominant over time, especially in the post-reform (1994–2010) period. Our estimated Kaldor–Verdoorn coefficients, measured as the employment elasticity of output growth, for both formal sector and total employment have dropped dramatically over time, suggesting that India has leapfrogged into a high-productivity regime without the broad-based expansion of labour-intensive production that has been characteristic of fast-growing economies in East Asia. We examine some explanations for why these Kaldor–Verdoorn effects have become pronounced over time and are not convinced that wage pressure has been one of the reasons. A shift in the composition of demand towards higher-productivity sectors, however, does appear to be an important part of the explanation. We also find mixed evidence that forces of international competition have generated pressures to adopt more capital-intensive techniques of production.

  • The Australian growth miracle: an evolutionary macroeconomic explanation
    • Authors: Foster; J.
      Pages: 871 - 894
      Abstract: An evolutionary macroeconomic approach is applied to explain economic growth in Australia from 1901 to 2008. Support is found for the hypothesis that there were two distinct developmental phases: before and after World War II. The evidence suggests that, in each phase, growth followed an innovation diffusion trajectory made possible by a growing capital stock. In the first phase, capital equipment seems to have augmented labour while, in the second, it reduced labour inputs, replaced by cheap fossil fuel inputs. This allowed significant transfers of labour into an expanding service sector. Strong economies of scale were operative in both phases, with labour hour inputs dominating in the first phase and fossil fuel consumption in the second. The results indicate that the Australian economy currently has very strong growth potential over the coming decade, although its heavy reliance on fossil fuels is viewed as a threat in the medium term.

  • From stationary state to endogenous growth: international trade in the
           mathematical formulation of the Ricardian system
    • Authors: Salvadori, N; Signorino, R.
      Pages: 895 - 912
      Abstract: In his 1814–15 correspondence with Malthus and in his Essay on Profits, Ricardo championed the free importation of wage goods as a highly effective growth-enhancing policy. In order to capture this aspect in the mathematical formulation of the Ricardian system first introduced by Pasinetti in 1960 in the context of a closed economy, we produce a variant of that model where the economy is a small open one. We show that this economy is characterised by endogenous growth since the growth rate is bounded from below and we locate two thresholds concerning the allocation of labour among the two sectors of the economy and the pattern of international trade.

  • Linking the insights of Smith, Marx, Young and Hirschman on the division
           of labour: implications for economic integration and uneven development
    • Authors: Ho; P. S.-w.
      Pages: 913 - 939
      Abstract: This article distinguishes between two types of division of labour discussed by Smith. The final-product-specialisation type has been adopted as the basis of mainstream trade models that champion the benefits of free trade. The division-of-production-operations type can be extended through the works of Marx (transition to modern industry based on forms of manufacture), Young (industrial differentiation) and Hirschman (linkages). Through this some countries started reaping more benefits from increasing returns, engendering incipient uneven development that aggravates under unrestricted economic integration between them and the trailing countries. In the modern era the leading countries’ trans-national corporations have further shaped the international division of production operations, resulting in different forms of enclave development when their activities are unregulated. Under recently reached multi-lateral agreements that limit the use of subsidies and investment measures and strengthen the protection of intellectual property rights, uneven development would be sustained. Some future research directions are considered.

  • Varieties of Capitalism: Some Philosophical and Historical Considerations
    • Authors: Hodgson; G. M.
      Pages: 941 - 960
      Abstract: The literature on varieties of capitalism has stimulated some authors to challenge notions of ‘essentialism’ and even the concept of capitalism itself. This essay argues that the existence of varieties of capitalism does not rule out the need for, or possibility of, specification or definition of that type. Accordingly, ‘capitalism’ is still a viable term. The critique of ‘essentialism’ is also countered, after clarifying its meaning. In particular, a suitably defined ‘essentialism’ does not imply some kind of ontological or explanatory reductionism—‘economic’ or otherwise. But while adopting what are basically Aristotelian arguments about essences, we need to reject Aristotle’s auxiliary notion that variety generally results from temporary deviations from a representative type or trend. Furthermore, capitalism is a historically specific and relatively recent system: we need to develop a classificatory definition of that system that demarcates it from other past or possible social formations.
