Formatted abstract
Within this thesis an alternative interpretation of Kaldorian growth theory is provided to the prominent post-Keynesian viewpoint (i.e. Thirlwall 1987). The emphasis on the role of technology, entrepreneurship and qualitative structural change within Kaldor's growth models is examined in detail. In doing so an interpretation of Kaldor's work is provided which stresses its evolutionary nature. This allows for progress to be made along the lines of Metcalfe (1994) and Pugno (1996) by the construction of an evolutionary-Kaldorian model of growth and trade, where the emphasis is on the role of technology and diversity within the growth process. By doing this it is demonstrated that it is feasible to jointly pursue Kaldorian and evolutionary modelling, whilst generating Schumpeterian dynamics, within the same analytical framework.
