La teoría de juegos evolutivos (TJE) y la economía evolutiva de Thorstein Veblen: ¿es vebleniana la TJE?


  • Mauricio Villena


  • Marcelo J. Villena


El objetivo de este artículo es ligar la obra de Veblen sobre economía evolutiva con el enfoque de la recientemente desarrollada teoría de juegos evolutivos (TJE). Este es el primer paso en la incorporación de la teoría de evolución socioeconómica de Veblen en la discusión sobre la aplicación de la TJE a los ambientes sociales. También investigamos hasta qué punto se pueden usar los elementos de la TJE para formalizar algunos de los principios evolutivos básicos propuestos por Veblen.
