1850 1900 1950 2000 (2) Cyclical crises and structural Crises (1) Cyclical crises solve the conflict between capital a nd labour over the distribution of VAL. (2) Baumols cost disease: when capital accumulation eventually absorbes the available labour of the indust rial reserve army , large wage increases in the dynam ic sectors spill over into lagging sectors, and are most ly passed on to consumers in the form of higher price s. (3) When wages surpass VAL, a serious structural cri

ses is caused which destroy the existing capital accu mulation regimes. (3) Structural crisis and liner and non-liner de velopment (1) First strategy and liner development: shi fting leading industries to new dynamic indu stries. (2) Second strategy: extending the compar ative advantage by forcing free trade and m arket policies to other countries so that they cannot catch up (kicking away the ladder).
