¿Tenemos algo que aprender de Keynes ahora?


  • Antonio Torrero Mañas


En este breve ensayo el Pfsor. Torrero plantea la vigencia del pensamiento de Keynes en la actualidad, especialmente en tres puntos: el exceso de ahorro o el déficit de inversión; la existencia de instituciones financieras privadas con sus propias normas y los problemas que se derivan de ello; y, la importancia de la incertidumbre. Este úlimo punto constituye el foco central del ensayo del que se saca la importante conclusión de que es necesario adecuar las instituciones a la aceptación de que la incertidumbre radical existe, y no podemos comportarnos como si fuera posible transformarla en riesgo susceptible de medición. Por cometer este error nos encontramos inmersos todavía en la crisis que comenzó en 2008.
