CATANO, José Félix. ¿RENOVACIÓN O ELIMINACIÓN DE LOS CLÁSICOS? COMENTARIOS CRÍTICOS A UNA CONTRIBUCIÓN RECIENTE DE H. CUEVAS. Cuad. Econ. [online]. 2003, vol.22, n.39, pp. 15-46. ISSN 0121-4772.
H. Cuevas has proposed the idea of "renovating" classical thought from rent theory, from measuring value by means of work and "selecting techniques" in a way different to that proposed by the Neo-Ricardian school. This article criticises this position, showing that these elements create an erroneous view of the evolution of economic theory, deforming the main positions adopted by classical thinkers, leading to such "renovation" being more an "assimilation" of their ideas within the bosom of neoclassical or Walrasian theory than being recognised as an adaptation of general economic theory.
Keywords : classical and neoclassical schools; price theory; rent theory; history of economic theory.
