¿Qué papel han jugado los modelos en economía?


  • Alfonso Avila


Este documento aborda la problemática del uso de la Matemática en Economía. Reconociendo las limitaciones que implica el uso de las matemáticas en el intento de recoger fielmente toda la complejidad de las teorías que no han sido escritas en lenguaje matemático, se muestra también el importante papel que ha tenido este uso en la generación de nuevas teorías económicas. Se dedica una atención especial a Adam Smith y el primer modelo del equilibrio y Keynes y los modelos keynesianos.
