LIBERTAD POLITICA Y LIBERTAD ECONOMICA – Alberto Benegas Lynch (h) y Ezequiel L. Gallo (Libertas No. 1 – ESEADE – octubre de 1984)

El prestigio creciente de las ideas liberales en círculos académicos e intelectuales ha estimulado, como es lógico, tentativas por mejorar y hacer más consistentes sus principios básicos. Paralelamente a este encomiable esfuerzo, muchos autores han intentado ajustarlo a lo que a veces se denominan “las exigencias de los tiempos que corren”. Este segundo aspecto, en nuestra opinión, ha llevado a conclusiones que resultan incompatibles con los principios centrales de aquel cuerpo de ideas. Pocos de esos ajustes han tenido tanta influencia como el que intenta una separación tajante entre la llamada “libertad política” y lo que habitualmente se denomina “libertad económica”. Los que corrientemente hacen esta distinción señalan, también, la supremacía de la primera sobre la segunda.(4)

Este ensayo intenta ser una primera aproximación al problema, que estimule un amplio debate de un tema que consideramos crucial. En él se intentará señalar la invalidez de la distinción señalada y que, con las correcciones menores del caso, el viejo principio liberal de la “indivisibilidad de la libertad” sigue manteniendo toda su vigencia.(5) Se procura precisar, asimismo, los aspectos más relevantes del funcionamiento del mercado, puesto que pensamos que su conocimiento imperfecto es una de las causas principales de la subestimación de las llamadas libertades económicas. Finalmente, se tratará de demostrar que la fundamentación de la tesis en discusión ha descansado en un uso ambiguo, y a veces desacertado, de alguno de los conceptos centrales en discusión. Antes de iniciar el análisis del tema resulta conveniente esbozar algunos conceptos básicos del pensamiento liberal clásico.

PHILOSOPHY & METHODOLOGY OF ECONOMICS eJOURNAL – Vol. 9, No. 23: Apr 6, 2018

Announcements

The International Network for Economic Method (INEM) (http://www.econmethodology.org) is a nonprofit society that seeks to promote links among economic methodologists, philosophers of economics, economists in all fields, and scholars in cognate disciplines. It aims to serve all who would reflect upon the methods of economics and of closely related social sciences.

“Das Milton Friedman Problem?: A Reassessment of Friedman’s Contributions to Economic Methodology” Free Download

In terms of economic methodology, Friedman’s most well-known contribution is his 1953 essay, “The Methodology of Positive Economics.” This important contribution has overshadowed his earlier contribution to economic methodology, entitled “Lerner on the Economics of Control” (1947). Whereas Friedman (1953) argued that economic theory can be built upon unrealistic assumptions, ironically, what has been almost forgotten is that Friedman (1947) attacked the theory of market socialism precisely for its unrealistic assumptions. This irony presents an interesting puzzle, which we adjudicate in this essay. We argue that in each case, Friedman was making an immanent critique of his intellectual opponents that was rhetorically consistent, yet methodologically inconsistent. This methodological inconsistency is irreconcilable, since Friedman (1953) contradicts the analysis of Friedman (1947).

In this chapter, we discuss social network analysis as a method for the history of economics. We argue that social network analysis is not primarily a method of data representation but foremost a method of discovery and confirmation. It is as such a promising method that should be added to the toolbox of the historian of economics. We furthermore argue that, to be meaningfully applied in history, social network analysis must be complemented with historical knowledge gained by other means and often by more traditional, mostly qualitative, methods. It should therefore be viewed as a method that complements rather than replaces more established approaches in the history of economics.

“The Impact that Ramsey’s Overlooking of Keynes’s Non Additive, Interval Valued Probability Approach in His Reviews of the a Treatise on Probability Has Had on Philosophers and Economists” Free Download

MICHAEL EMMETT BRADY, California State University, Dominguez Hills
Email: mandmbrady@juno.com

Ramsey’s failure to grasp the interval valued and non additive nature of Keynesian probability assessments in the A Treatise on Probability has led to the misbelief that Keynes’s approach was an ordinal one. While Keynes’s approach easily handles ordinal probability, the theory of the Treatise on Probability that of “Approximation”, which is interval valued probability.

Ramsey’s reviews, however, have been accepted at face value by philosophically interested readers, who fail to grasp that Ramsey has no idea about the fundamental non additive, sub additive, nature of Keynes’s interval valued probability approach. This leads to some very strange assessments of Keynes’s A Treatise on Probability by philosophers who are reading that book.

“Contemporary Elements of Business Philosophy and Knowledge from an Ignatian Perspective”

MICHAEL FASCIA, University of Oxford, Campion Hall
Email: michael.fascia@campion.ox.ac.uk

From a retail environment, we reflect on the unity of knowledge as valuable in a business context, and from an Ignatian perspective, consider a reflexion of knowledge transfer practitioners to elementary cognition. We deliberate why, despite decades of analytical scrutiny, agreement around the transfer of knowledge into a value item within a business milieu, remains troublesome and problematic. We ask if perspectives derived from an Ignatian domain can allow for alternative elements of analysis and reasoning, becoming more complementary within a business environment. Utilising a mixed method approach incorporating (n=6) participants, the study considered responses overarched by Ignatian rules of sentiment as an interpretive lens (n=18), and utilised a hermeneutic of discernment as a frame of reference. Drawn from a POPC frame of reference, Ignatian annotations (n=20) allow a linear dependence of correlation coefficients to support a correlation matrix. Although not strictly a research method, correlation analysis in this instance permits antipodal interpretation of content between the rules supporting spiritual exercises, and decisions taken by employees and managers. Thus, enabling the study to identify latent causality patterns within organisational decision-making processes.
