Nicholas Kaldor after thirty years Academic Article uri icon


  • The article analyses Kaldor’s ideas on economic policy, his interest in policy issues, and his contribution on specific policies. It underlines Kaldor’s strong and cogent views on: (i) monetary and fiscal policy, (ii) the control of cost inflation, and (iii) the stabilisation of commodity prices. The author suggests how Kaldor would have reacted to the most important economic policy questions that still face Britain and the European Union, thirty years after his death.
