I would like to use the correct or accepted label for the class of economic
models associated with Von Neumann, Sraffa, Pasinetti, Steedman and
others. The common elements I want to characterise are: (i) simultaneous
solution to a set of technical-production constraints, (ii) distribution of
a physical, surplus product, (iii) production of commodities by means of
Can anyone tell me what is the accepted label for this class of models?
I've come across labels such as "neo-Ricardian", "surplus approach",
"linear production theory" and "physical quantities approach". Is there a
commonly accepted label that the practitioners accept?

Thanks for any help in advance.
