Piero Ferri, Professor Emeritus of Economics, University of Bergamo, Italy
Publication Date: March 2022 ISBN: 978 1 80220 600 5 Extent: c 256 pp
Piero Ferri expertly broadens the analysis of the canonical growth cycle approach by presenting a Minsky-Harrod model, examining how the relationship between income distribution, growth and unemployment becomes increasingly complex. Exploring this new technique to generate a process of growth, based not only on history but disequilibrium, he investigates the current income distribution debate further and the challenges it faces.

Piero Ferri expertly broadens the analysis of the canonical growth cycle approach by presenting a Minsky-Harrod model, examining how the relationship between income distribution, growth and unemployment becomes increasingly complex. Exploring this new technique to generate a process of growth, based not only on history but disequilibrium, he investigates the current income distribution debate further and the challenges it faces.
 
Written in a succinct yet comprehensive style, Piero Ferri begins by addressing the basic principles, followed by an in-depth look at growth cycle models and how the Minsky-Harrod integrated model would help to unravel the current complexities. The empirical analysis reaches insightful conclusions by justifying the existence of a variety of results and by studying the distributive loop in a dynamic context which is prone to instability.
 
Teachers of macroeconomics and scholars will find this an invaluable read and will benefit from the practical study and results.  Researchers interested in labour economics and political economy will also find this a thought-provoking book.
Critical Acclaim
‘In this book, Professor Ferri extends his formidable research on macroeconomic dynamics into a broad analysis of how income distribution affects aggregate outcomes. He develops creative insights to both synthesize a wide range of existing research and break new ground.’
– Steven Fazzari, Washington University, St. Louis, US

‘Piero Ferri thinks big, focusing on the nexus of income distribution, growth and unemployment that has been at the centre of economic thinking since the inception of the discipline. Ferri makes Harrod, Kaldor and Goodwing meet Minsky in an original and penetrating synthesis. The aggregate macroeconomic setting he brilliantly masters throughout the book generates a wide range of dynamic outcomes and provides invaluable insights especially for macroeconomists exploring the economy as a complex evolving system.’
– Domenico Delli Gatti, Catholic University in Milan, Italy
