Escisión entre la racionalidad económica instrumental y la gobernabilidad de la sociedad

Listed author(s):
  • José Gpe. Vargas Hernández

Este trabajo se propone analizar las relaciones de escisión existentes entre la racionalidad económica y la gobernabilidad de la sociedad. Primeramente se hace énfasis en el estudio de las instituciones y las normas que constituyen la base del funcionamiento interrelacional que determina el grado de racionalidad instrumental entre los diferentes actores del Estado (gobiernos, burócratas, políticos, etc.) el mercado (propietarios privados) y la sociedad civil. Se revisan las teorías de la elección racional y elección pública, el enfoque conceptual de la elección irracional, la teoría del agente –principal y los costos de transacción para rematar con una crítica a las bondades del modelo de la racionalidad instrumental. Finalmente, en función de las bases teórico metodológicas anteriores se analiza la gobernabilidad de la sociedad y se discuten sus implicaciones.
