El Significado de Racionalidad en Economía


Author Info

  • Jorge M. Streb


La hipótesis de racionalidad es central en teoría económica actual, y sirve de hilo unificador en la historia del análisis económico. Se ha extendido a otras ciencias sociales bajo el enfoque de decisión racional. Se puede distinguir entre racionalidad en sentido limitado (maximización de beneficio), y racionalidad en sentido amplio (optimización). El significado de la racionalidad individual se reexamina explorando las implicancias psicológicas de la racionalidad: la racionalidad se puede ver como inteligencia analítica más madurez emocional. La racionalidad es un principio a nivel individual, que no coincide necesariamente con la racionalidad colectiva. Las fallas de racionalidad se pueden ligar con problemas de racionalidad acotada y con inconsistencias en nuestras preferencias.
