Crisis económica y crisis de la teoría económica. Notas para el debate

Alicia Puyana Mutis

Resumen


La crisis que enfrentó el mundo de la economía en 2007 intensificó el cuestionamiento del modelo neoclásico de oferta, sostén de las políticas económicas de las últimas tres décadas. Golpeó la economía real, la disputa política y la fundamentación teórica de la disciplina económica y de su enseñanza. Estos debates señalan la necesidad de revisar profundamente la teoría macroeconómica para rechazar los elementos fallidos y repensar cómo se forma y transmite el conocimiento en economía.


Palabras clave


Economía; crisis económica; economía neoclásica; crecimiento económico; metáforas económicas; axiomas ergódicos.
