In part, Schumpeter’s evaluation of monopoly reflects his conception of competition as a dynamic process rather than as a set of structural conditions or a static, equilibrium endstate. In this, he is closer to Marx than to such contemporary individualist-conservative economists as Friedrich Hayek and Milton Friedman. The neoliberalism of the contemporary individualist-conservatives, like the classical liberalism of Adam Smith and John Stuart Mill, rests on the principle of atomistically competitive markets as social processes for economic coordination and control of business enterprise.
Focusing first on Schumpeter’s reaction to Marx, it may be observed that, although he differed from Marx on details (for example, concerning such long-run tendencies as increasing cyclical intensity and increasing “immiserization” of labor), Schumpeter never denied the existence of any of Marx’s major contradictory features of capitalism. Class struggles, surplus values, cyclical crises, depressions, unemployment, inequality in wealth, power, and income, and monopoly and centralization of capital are all woven into Schumpeter’s analysis.
Turning to the second, substantive point, Schumpeter’s “sociological” writings, notably Capitalism, Socialism, and Democracy, elaborate and complement Economic Development by providing a conservative, antisocialist alternative to both Marx and Keynes. In simplified terms, we may characterize the relations among Marx, Keynes, and Schumpeter as follows: Marx (1) identified some major properties of capitalist behavior (for example, depressions, inequality in income distribution), (2) designated these properties as flaws or contradictions of the system, and (3) predicted the death of capitalism significantly because of its economic contradictions.
