Stefan Ederer, Miriam Rehm, Will wealth become more concentrated in Europe? Evidence from a calibrated neo-Kaleckian model

PKSG Working Paper, 2017, (1717), https://www.postkeynesian.net/working-papers/1717/
We develop and calibrate an analytical growth model in the neo-Kaleckian tradition with an endogenous wealth distribution and differential returns to wealth between workers and capitalists. We show that a long-run equilibrium allows for non-zero wealth owned by workers, even as the model contains the "triumph of the rentier" predicted by Piketty's r > g as a special case. The model's calibration to ten European countries shows that the distribution of wealth is likely to become more unequal in all cases, barring political countermeasures.

Andreas Reinstaller, Peter Reschenhofer, Using PageRank in the analysis of technological progress through patents: an illustration for biotechnological inventions

Scientometrics, 2017, (3), pp.1407-1438, https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11192-017-2549-x
This paper examines whether PageRank algorithms are a valid instrument for the analysis of technical progress in specific technological fields by means of patent citation data. It provides evidence for patent data in biotechnology. Recent literature has been critical with regard to the use of PageRank for the analysis of scientific citation networks. The results reported in this paper indicate, however, that with some minor adaptations and careful interpretation of the results the algorithm can be used to capture some important stylised facts of technical progress and the importance of single patents relatively well especially if compared to indicators based on direct inward citations only.
