Un análisis de las conductas económicas a la luz de la Ética


  • Federico Marongiu

    (Universidad de Buenos Aires)


El trabajo pretende analizar ciertas dificultades que surgen del análisis de la economía clásica al considerar la ética y los valores morales como un concepto absolutamente desligado del comportamiento del agente económico (ya sea consumidor o productor), fundamentalmente en el proceso de toma de decisiones. Este tipo de análisis es excesivamente simplificado, y tal como se demuestra en este trabajo, es necesario un replanteo de la ciencia económica, incluyendo valores sociales, culturales, religiosos, políticos, éticos (visto como una mayor interacción entre la ciencia económica y otras ciencias o disciplinas) para tener una visión completa y realista de las acciones de los individuos, de las variables económicas y de las interrelaciones existentes entre éstas. Para el análisis hemos partido de los fundamentos clásicos de la microeconomía y de ciertas objeciones que pueden hacerse a éstos.
