Abstract

Tomando como punto de partida las dificultades económicas actuales, se pretende, siguiendo el modelo cíclico de Ibn Jaldún, una aproximación a las oscilaciones de la actividad económica teniendo en cuenta simultáneamente los lados de la oferta y de la demanda, entendiendo que el protagonismo de uno y otro lado puede modificarse en el tiempo, o que los dos pueden actuar simultáneamente, como sería el caso en la situación económica actual a juzgar por los síntomas observados. Asimismo, se llama la atención sobre la complejidad existente en la práctica, si se tiene en cuenta la riqueza de las motivaciones humanas, frente al carácter unidimensional del homo oeconomicus smithiano, a partir del cual se han elaborado nuestras concepciones económicas. Starting from the current economic difficulties, we will try to increase our knowledge of economic cycle with the help of Ibn Khaldûn Cyclical Model, considering simultaneously the eventual shocks of demand and supply sides. Both of them may influence on the oscillatory movements of economic activity, separately (with different grades of emphasize each one, depending on the moment) or simultaneously. According to the observed symptoms, we think the last option should be the best explanation nowadays. We also have to remark the real complexity of economic functioning, having in mind the variety of human motivations versus the one-dimensional character of Smith’s homo oeconomicus, which is in the basis of our conventional economic conceptions.
