    Abstract

    Los años que Albert O. Hirschman vivió en Colombia le sirvieron para moldear el contenido de su principal publicación: La estrategia del desarrollo económico. La experiencia adquirida durante su estadía en Colombia, donde participó en misiones del gobierno que recorrieron todo el país, le permitió diseñar un método de investigación basado en las prácticas observadas de lo que la gente hacía, contrario a las visiones ortodoxas que planteaban normas a partir de lo que la gente debería hacer. Su crítica a la economía planificadora del desarrollo, basada en el crecimiento balanceado, planteaba la estrategia hacía el desarrollo económico no como una necesidad de superar la escasez de factores sino como una necesidad de mejorar la habilidad de los agentes para tomar decisiones. Sus observaciones de la cotidianidad colombiana le brindaron la evidencia necesaria para entender que los problemas se resolvían en la práctica y le permitieron generar estrategias para facilitar la solución de los problemas a partir del agente económico.
