Inhalt:
Theories of the business cycle can be classified into two main groups, exogenous and endogenous, according to the way they explain economic fluctuations—either as responses of the economy to factors that are external (exogenous shocks) or as upturns and downturns of the economic system internally generated (by endogenous factors). In endogenous theories investment is generally a key variable to explain the dynamic status of the economy. This essay examines the role of investment in endogenous theories. Two contrasting views on how changes in investment and profitability push the economy toward expansion or contraction are represented by the insights of Kalecki, Keynes, Matthews, and Minsky, versus those of Marx and Mitchell. Hyman Minsky claimed that investment ″calls the tune″ to indicate that investment is the only variable not determined by other variables, so that future profits, investment, and the dynamic status of the economy are determined by current investment and investment in the near past. However, this hypothesis does not appear to be supported by available empirical data for 251 quarters of the U.S. economy. Statistical evidence rather supports the hypothesis of causality in the direction of profits determining investment and, in this way, leading the economy toward boom or bust.
