Mercado, tecnologia e socialismo: notas sobre a rodada atual de um debate histórico


  • Eduardo da Motta e Albuquerque



This paper reviews two elaborations on alternatives to capitalism (Roemer, 1994 e Burczak, 2006). The present round of the controversy on socialism, planning vs. market, was triggered by the collapse of the bureaucratic regime in the URSS. One key feature of the present round is the influence of Hayek. One important argument for the fundamental role of markets in these models of socialism is technology – seen as a product of market forces. This paper evaluates the present round as an introduction to a suggestion of new terms for this important debate.
