Abstract

Professor González criticizes the separation of the microeconomic and the macroeconomics, he considers this inadequate not only from the theoretical point of view, but also from a pedagogical perspective. The first part of the article shows how economic theory has been built without differentiating micro from macro. For he the great authors do not separate them. The next part of the article shows the intrinsic fragilities of micro and it questions the pertinence of the microfoundation of macro; if micro is weak, then it cannot support the macro. The article ends by mentioning some important areas in contemporary economic discussion that could be studied without making such distinction.
