Herbert A. Simon y la economía organizacional


  • Fernando Estrada Gallego


Este artículo analiza los aspectos centrales de la obra de Herbert A. Simon, en especial el orientado al análisis de la economía de las organizaciones con énfasis en el criterio de racionalidad limitada. Se interpreta la crítica de Simon a la versión ortodoxa de la burocracia organizacional y se extiende su análisis hacia la economía institucional. Uno de los principales logros de Simon en teoría organizacional consiste en haber valorado analíticamente la psicología del comportamiento individual y colectivo abriendo el camino a las investigaciones posteriores de D. Kahneman y T. Schelling.
