Income distribution in a corporate economy

Russell Rimmer

"Income Distribution in a Corporate Economy" offers an examination of the influences of financial markets and imperfect competition on the distributive process. Unlike much of the earlier literature, it concentrates upon the short-run, making it suitable for empirical appraisal. After reviewing the theoretical and empirical literature of the past 30 years, Russell Rimmer uses a series of models to synthesize results from post-Keynesian macroeconomics, investment theory and industry economics. The final chapters contain an analysis of the short-run effects of changes in pricing strategies and increases in industrial concentration on income shares accruing to households and corporations.
