Abstract

The work of Douglass North represents today an important reference for those studying issues related to growth and institutional economics. After the book Institutions, Institutional Change and Economic Performance (1990) and the Nobel prize in 1993, his contributions seem to have been incorporated among economists, specially in the debate of growth and its determinants. There are still today some controversies regarding the nature of his contributions. Some would argue that his ideas are clearly from a neoclassical strand, while others would say that much of his work is affiliated with heterodox thinking. The objective of this paper is to contribute to this discussion. We argue here that one of the important influences in the work of Douglass North comes from Marx. North seems to use some of the Marxist concepts in his works of 1981 and 1990 in an inverted manner: he accepts Marxist categories but rejects materialism. North uses Marxist theory heuristically, taking advantage of its elements to build an alternative model to rational choice approaches.
