The linear equation of Ch. 10 is an approximation, a curvilinear relationship being theoretically preferable. The latter implies that the share of wages in total income falls the faster is the rate of growth of employment, cet. par. Some support for this is provided by the data used in Ch. 10, but there are evidently other important influences on the share of wages, which are discussed.

Keywords: curvilinear relation; rate of growth of employment; share of wages
