  • Félix Jiménez

    () (Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú)


Este capítulo presenta el contenido de la controversia en torno a la teoría del capital que se llevó a cabo entre los economistas más importantes de las universidades de Cambridge (Inglaterra) y Cambridge (Estados Unidos). Primero se presenta las proposiciones fundamentales de la teoría neoclásica, es decir, las parábolas neoclásicas. La segunda sección aborda las críticas de Joan Robinson a la teoría neoclásica del capital y las críticas de Garegnani a la teoría de la productividad marginal decreciente. En la tercera parte, se expone el intento de Samuelson de validar la función de producción neoclásica y los principales errores que él comete. La cuarta sección presenta la respuesta de Solow y la crítica de Nell. Finalmente, en la quinta sección, se señalan los principales aportes de esta controversia sobre la teoría del capital.
