    Abstract

    En el presente trabajo se plantea una reflexión sobre las líneas de desarrollo más importantes de la Economía de la Información y la Incertidumbre. Se plantean las ideas básicas que sustentan cada uno de estos cuerpos teóricos, así como cuáles han sido las extensiones más relevantes del enfoque. Se aborda, en diferentes apartados, los antecedentes y trabajos pioneros del análisis de la información, las relaciones entre la Economía de la Información, de la Incertidumbre y de la Búsqueda, la revisión del papel del sistema de precios como transmisor de información, y algunas implicaciones para el análisis de las expectativas This paper discusses the development of two outstanding parts of Economic Theory: The Economics of Information and the Economics of Uncertainty. Other important extentions on expectatives theory are studied. In different sections are presented the antecedents and the relations beween Information, Uncertaintly and Search Theory. The rol of the price system as an imperfect transmitter of information and the relation beween incomplete information and expectatives are considered in the last part of the paper.
