Abstract

En este texto se presentan algunas ideas claves del estructuralismo latino-americano por medio de un conjunto muy acotado de ecuaciones y gráficos. El artículo pretende ser, al mismo tiempo, un instrumento didáctico (que puede usarse como apoyo en cursos de grado e de post-grado) y una caja de herramientas para pensar los efectos de ciertas políticas y choques sobre el crecimiento y la distribución. Se busca así contribuir a la enseñaza y difusión de una rica e importante corriente del pensamiento sobre desarrollo económico, destacando sus altos niveles de articulación interna, su originalidad y, al mismo tiempo, sus vínculos y continuidad con otras teorías heterodoxas del crecimiento y la distribución, como las teorías keynesiana y evolucionista. The paper offers by means of a simple set of graphics a presentation of some of the key insights of Latin American Structuralism (LAS). The paper emphasizes the close links that exist between LAS and other heterodox schools in growth theory, like Post-Keynesians and Schumpeterians. The graphs are used as a toolbox to study the effects on growth in developing economies of both international shocks and domestic industrial and technological policies.
