Abstract

Continuamente se critica a la ciencia económica en base a que sus modelos son descripciones inexactas de una realidad inabarcable y que, por tanto, carecen de un valor real. En este artículo intento dar una descripción propia de qué son los modelos económicos y por qué son tan valiosos, no solo para el progreso de la ciencia económica, sino para el razonamiento en términos económicos con el que nos debemos topar día a día. Continually, people criticizes economics on the grounds that their models are inaccurate descriptions of a vast reality and therefore they lack real value. This article attempts to give my own description of what are the economic models and why they are so valuable, not only for the advancement of the economic science but also reasoning in the economic terms with which we must deal in a daily basis.
