Notas sobre el método de la Economía
[Notes on the method of Economics]


  • Ávalos, Eloy


In the present document we will sell off a brief exposition about the method of Economics, utilizing the classification proposed by Nicholas Georgescu - Roegen based in the logical sorting of propositions that they conform the economic science. Furthermore, we will discuss the perspective of division of Economics in positive and in normative developed for Milton Friedman. Finally, we will try to relate and to expose the relations that may subsist among both focuses.
