A typical finding in many empirical studies is that the production price-profit rate relationship is, by and large, monotonic. This paper derives, in terms of the usual single-product model, the spectral conditions that make possible the appearance of such monotonicity. Furthermore, using data from input-output tables for a number of countries and years, it examines the extent to which actual economies fulfil those spectral conditions.
