Debate: Economistas en deuda o la deuda de los economistas


  • Diego Fernando Gómez Sanchez

    () (Centro de Estudios en Economía Sistémica —Ecsim—)


The great economic and social problems of contemporary societies, have provoked in recent years important critic reflections on the role of the economic theory and the profession of the economist. Such is the case of the debate provoked in France regarding Economy teaching, with the manifesto Mouvement des étudiants pour la réforme de l´economie that caused immediate answers coming from the different areas of the discipline, not only in France but in many places of the world. With this perspective in mind, Diego Gomez exposes in his text various important points on the task of the Economy and the economists, specially the Colombians; their analysis is examined from a different point of view, by Luis Guillermo Vélez.
