The present paper offers a global presentation of the New Institutional Economics (NIE) approach in order to show that a new consensus seems to be in the process of emerging since, as the new institutionalists themselves state, the new advances “seems to be in the direction of a more flexible and comprehensive model of political economy” in which attention is also paid to the distributive consequences derived from the existing institutional frame-works. Most new institutionalist still continue to adopt a perspective which leads them to search only for the degree of efficiency that is associated to each institutional framework, ceteris paribus.// El presente trabajo ofrece una presentación global del enfoque de análisis que suele caracterizar a las aportaciones realizadas en el ámbito de la nueva economía institucional (NEI) a efectos de mostrar que un nuevo consenso parece estar abriéndose paso de manera incipiente entre los nuevos institucionalistas en la medida en que, como afirman los propios autores, los nuevos logros “parecen avanzar más en la línea de elaborar análisis basados en un enfoque de economía política más comprensivo y flexible”, en el que resulte posible prestar atención también tanto a las consecuencias distributivas provenientes de la existencia de unos u otros marcos institucionales como a los conflictos distributivos que subyacen en todo proceso de reforma institucional. Todavía son mayoritarios, sin embargo, los trabajos en los que estos economistas adoptan una perspectiva que busca únicamente destacar el mayor o menor grado de eficiencia al que cada marco institucional da lugar, ceteris paribus.
