A second channel of adjustment of the warranted rate towards the actual rate of growth is a change in the average propensity to save in the economy. The reason for this may be either a change in individual saving behaviour or a change in income distribution, provided that the propensities to save between different income groups differ. Let us consider the latter case in more detail. There is good reason to assume that the propensity to save out of wages falls short of the propensity to save out of profits.
Given these omissions, Kregel concludes: Harrod has provided a much needed methodological approach and a valuable start towards placing the General Theory in a dynamic context. The idea that the warranted and the natural rate are not necessarily the same or equal and the complications that arise when they are not ranks as a basic contribution to growth. The general approach, however, lacks the necessary variables to answer other important problems in growth. 118) But what exactly is Harrod’s contribution and how could it be developed towards a theory of growth?
In the present chapter, however, we start with Domar and Harrod. Domar tried to determine an equilibrium growth rate of income, which guarantees a constant utilization of production capacities, taking into account the capacity effect of investment. 2. Harrod was interested in the trade cycle and in dynamic theory, and he predicts unstable dynamics around the growth equilibrium, which is therefore dealt with after the presentation of Domar’s approach. 4. 5, we deal with the textbook ‘post-Keynesian Harrod–Domar growth model’, and we show that it has nothing to do with Harrod’s and Domar’s problems and that it provides rather the grounds for neoclassical growth theory, which is discussed in Chapter 3.
