Meio século da controvérsia do capital de Cambridge

Autores

Palavras-chave:

Controvérsia de Cambridge, Controvérsia do capital, Lei dos rendimentos decrescentes, Livre concorrência, Teoria neoclássica

Resumo

Este artigo procura reexaminar as aparentes inconsistências lógicas da teoria neoclássica identificadas durante a Controvérsia de Cambridge, mas posteriormente desconsideradas na literatura mainstream, com base no argumento que essas inconsistências não estão presentes nos modelos de equilíbrio geral de Arrow Debreu. Nesse sentido, apresenta os principais problemas envolvidos, assim como exemplos numéricos que procuram tornar mais clara a argumentação desenvolvida. Além de uma perspectiva crítica, pretende ter uma função propedêutica, a qual, contudo, se vê naturalmente limitada pela complexidade do tema e dos argumentos usados pelos autores que o têm abordado.
