Abstract

En el capítulo tercero de la TPE, Jevons recurre al uso de las probabilidades como un método alternativo para analizar el intercambio de las mercancías. Jevons, decide no continuar con el uso de las probabilidades en los capítulos siguientes; su teoría se bifurca imperando el uso del cálculo diferencial. La explicaciónde esta bifurcación radica en la existencia de dos métodos alternativos para explicar el análisis del intercambio: La teoría de las probabilidades y el cálculo diferencial. Usar el cálculo diferencial no significaba que fuese el método más eficiente, pues no sólo existieron errores al maximizar como muestra Westergaard(1874), sino también problemas metodológicos, como muestranStigler (1956) y Blaug (1985). Por otro lado, el método de las probabilidades habría significado para el análisis del intercambio, un problema de valores esperados y un camino totalmente diferente para la revolución marginalista.
