Economics Inter-viewed

Carlos Mallorquin ( Doctor en Estudios Latinoamericanos. UNAM. Master en Sociología. Universidad de Londres. Profesor del Instituto de Ciencias Sociales y Humanidades. Universidad Autónoma de Puebla. México


In the last two decades the growth of economic inequalities in Latin America has increased with unprecedented speed. Strategically the advance of neoclassical economic orthodoxy on Latin American, posed the issue in terms that it was their autochthonous economic Ideas (”structuralism”) the real culprits of much that had been going wrong in these economies. Given that their narrative over what had been going on in Latin America was generally misplaced, the recovery and defense of its ideas is one of the steps necessary to initiate a process of economic growth and redistribution of wealth. On the other hand, the process also would require an examination of the alternatives offered from the not very orthodox camp of economists in the “first world”, so that we may learn from their experiences to think alternatives in Latin America: that was one of the main reasons that the interviews were undertaken to K. Tribe, J. Toye, G. Hodgson, G. Thompson. The themes were centered on the hegemonic role and future of the neoclassical orthodoxy in general and the possibilities of change as well as the structure of the economic profession in their countries.

Key words: G. Thompson; G. Hodgson, K. Tribe, J. Toye, neoclassical economics, institutionalism, Latin American economical thought, R. Prebisch, C. Furtado, economical development.
