Jean-Jacques Rousseau y Karl Marx: estudio comparativo de dos críticas a la economía de mercado

Andrés Álvarez () and Jimena Hurtado Prieto ()

Revista de Economía Institucional, 2008, vol. 10, issue 18, 103-127

Abstract: We present a comparison between the works of two great critics of the market economy: Rousseau and Marx. It shows their similarities and divergences, most important of which is the place they give to economic analysis in their intellectual and political theories. Whereas Marx built his political and scientific criticism on economic analysis, Rousseau believed this analysis could not be the starting point for understanding social organization. Their monetary theories can explain this difference.
