Abstract

Este artículo hace una lectura crítica de las principales interpretaciones modernas de los escritos económicos de Aristóteles. Primero revisa el debate entre las corrientes “primitivista” y “modernista”, encabezado por Rodbertus, Bücher y Meyer. Luego presenta y comenta los puntos de vista de Karl Marx, Joseph Schumpeter, Karl Polanyi y Moses Finley, los comentaristas más célebres de legado económico aristotélico.

Thorstein Veblen (1857-1929) is one of the founders of American institutional economics. This paper aims to make a presentation of his theory of consumption and his theory of business cycles and crises, through an analytical reading of his works: 'The Theory of the Leisure Class' and 'The Theory of Business Enterprise'. In order to complete this analysis, we also make a general presentation of the author's thought and a brief systematization of his critique of orthodox economic thought.
