Abstract

El concepto de equilibrio se ha convertido en el eje central del análisis económico moderno. Más aún, ha sido este mismo concepto el que ha dado los ímpetus para la expansión de la teoría económica hacia esferas de las ciencias sociales que antes le eran ajenas. El presente artículo busca explicar el proceso de cambio en la ciencia económica que ha llevado a esta situación, así como ofrecer una discusión somera de los fundamentos del concepto de equilibrio, sus fortalezas, los retos metodológicos que plantea, en especial en el caso de los “equilibrios múltiples”, y esbozar algunas alternativas para abordar dichos desafíos.
