Hicks, A Teoria Geral e A Teoria Geral Generalizada

  • Claudia Heller

    (Universidade Estadual Paulista)

A despeito da interpretação mais comum de que a formalização da Teoria Geral elaborada por John Hicks é inspirada principalmente pela busca de “elegância matemática”, este artigo mostra que Hicks se baseia em argumentos teóricos e relações de causalidade específicas para chegar aos seus resultados. Hicks reconhece a importância da “doutrina da preferência pela liquidez” e discute os efeitos do investimento sobre a renda (multiplicador) e da renda sobre o investimento (acelerador). Nossa interpretação da formulação de Hicks e em particular, do papel atribuído à taxa de juros, ajuda a esclarecer os motivos do sucesso da chamada “síntese neoclássica”.
