Last night I dreamt of Nick van Rowe again. I asked my Dutch ancestor what he thought would happen to the distribution of wealth in the future.
According to Dutch Capital Theory, "capital" is just the name we give to land that we have made ourselves in the past. The rent on an acre of land equals the value marginal product of that acre of land. But the price of land depends on both the rent (and expected future rents) and the rate of interest. And (one plus) the rate of interest equals people's marginal willingness to trade-off future consumption for present consumption.
We can imagine an economy where the aggregate stock of land, population, technology, preferences, output, wages, and land rents, are all constant over time, but where the price of land and inequality of wealth will grow over time.
