Valor, Capital e Instituições Sociais em Carl Menger: as contribuições de uma obra inacabada


  • Eduardo Albuquerque



The theoretical legacy of Carl Menger involves works on value, capital and the origin of social institutions. There is a huge literature on Menger, that has been growing since Schumpeter wrote his short article on the founding father of Austrian Economics in 1921. Reavaliations concerning the place of Menger in the history of economic thought have suggested the de-homogeneization of Menger, Walras and Jevons (Jaffé, 1976) and the desaggregation of Menger, Böhm-Bawerk e Weiser. It might be that now is a moment for a new line of investigation: the desequencing of Menger, Mises and Hayek.
