Since the beginning of the economic science, politics and economics have been closely related. The study of the interaction between these two fields has originated what we know today as political economy. However, political economy is a broad field that includes a wide range of school of thought that it would be impossible to discuss in one article. The present work gives a revision of the literature focusing in the main contributions that neoclassical political economy has made to the understanding of governmental behavior. Special emphasis is given to the discussion of examples of neoclassical political economy applied to Latin American countries.// Desde los inicios de la ciencia económica, política y economía han estado ligadas. El estudio de la interacción entre estos dos campos ha dado origen a lo que hoy conocemos como economía política. Sin embargo, el término de economía política es un concepto general que abarca una amplia gama de escuelas de pensamientos que sería imposible analizar en un solo artículo. El presente trabajo entrega una revisión de la bibliografía de las principales aportaciones que la escuela de economía política neoclásica ha hecho al entendimiento del accionar de los gobiernos. Particular acento es puesto en analizar ejemplos de la economía política neoclásica aplicada a países de la América Latina.
