Functional Distribution, Land Ownership and Industrial Takeoff: The Role of Effective Demand

Ennio Bilancini / Simone D'Alessandro
Published Online: 2008-08-19 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2202/1935-1682.1912

Abstract

In this paper we analyse how the distribution of land property rights affects industrial takeoff and aggregate income through its impact on effective demand. We apply a modified version of the model provided in Murphy et al. (1989, QJE) which allows us to analyse the role of land distribution when it is independent of the distribution of firm ownership. We extend the result of Murphy et al. (1989, QJE) by showing that industrialization and income depend non-monotonically on the distribution of land and by demonstrating that this result is due to the way land distribution affects the distribution of profits among firms. Moreover, we show that there may be a tradeoff between industrialization and income, the latter being associated with a distribution of land which is more equal than that associated with maximum industrialization.

Keywords: industrialization; increasing returns; effective demand; functional distribution; land ownership
