Civilización, economía y orden espontaneo: La inviabilidad evolutiva del socialismo
[Civilization, economy and spontaneous order: The evolutionary infeasibility of the socialism]


  • Rodríguez González, Guillermo


The purpose of this paper is to explain the scope of evolutionary infeasibility of socialism in the broad sense, in light of the theory of spontaneous order of F. A. Hayek. To that end we will study the redefinition of socialism in the context of evolutionary praxeology, we apply the theory of the infeasibility of socialism itself, of the Austrian School in two examples, included in the definition of socialism in the broad sense: the monetary and financial policy under fractional banking system and neo malthusian analysis off efficiently ecological and economic sustainability of large populations. Wiht such examples showing the range off diversity of socialism, understood as constructive intellectual error, we will base our analysis on the theory of the Sensory Order Hayek on the human mind and the limits of reason as the cause of the scientific impracticability of any attempt to centralized planning teleological over evolutionary self-regulating systems, whose enormous inherent complexity of information is overwhelming for to human reason except in limited circunstances and only in general strokes.
