Abstract

En este trabajo el autor se lamenta de la importancia cada vez menor que se otorga a la historia del pensamiento económico en la comunidad académica mundial, defiende que esta recesión está dando lugar a visiones unidimensionales de la obra de los principales autores en economía y afirma que, si lo analizamos de cerca, podemos sorprendernos de la simplicidad de las concepciones más corrientes. Como triple ilustración, básicamente citando algunas partes omitidas de sus trabajos, el autor hace hincapié en los casos de Adam Smith, Francis Ysidro Edgeworth y John Maynard Keynes, que imparten lecciones cruciales ignoradas por la mayoría de la generación actual de economistas.
