    Abstract

    El tema de la matematización" de la economía se trata en el marco de la relación entre la cultura y la tecnología y el temadel avance de las técnicas del análisis económico se enmarca en el principio de Adam Smith de la división del trabajo en laindustria de la ciencia. Por medio de un argumento verbal se muestran las relaciones entre la cultura, la tecnología y eldescubrimiento científico y se concluye que la enseñanza de la economía, además de los principios económicos, deberíatransmitir una buena actitud y aptitud matemáticas. Además, se emplea el ejemplo de la división del trabajo y las economíasexternas en la industria del conocimiento científico para ilustrar la diferencia entre economías externas y economías deescala, así como para mostrar, en el caso de la industria del conocimiento, la importancia del argumento de Currie (1986)sobre las consecuencias de política de los modelos que utilizan la axiomatización más estándar del crecimiento económico."
