Abstract

José Luis Sampedro decía de sí mismo que era una ‘metaeconomista’. Era un modo sutil de distanciarse de los economistas que no veían la “montaña del hambre” pero pretendían adivinar el futuro; aunque casi siempre erraban sus previsiones, se conformaban con actualizar los datos en lugar de revisar los modelos utilizados.
La crisis actual aporta muchos ejemplos similares: la economía ortodoxa resta importancia a los desequilibrios y desigualdades que nos rodean, las burbujas financieras e inmobiliarias solo interesan cuando estallan, y la función
reguladora de las políticas públicas solo tiene sentido si está al servicio de la acumulación privada.
Por eso es necesario recuperar la visión de la economía que defendía Sampedro, y no olvidar la brecha de la desigualdad ni argumentar que hay manos invisibles que actúan en beneficio de todos. Aunque el neoliberalismo, la codicia y el uso interesado de la ciencia lo nieguen, el humanismo forma parte indisociable del análisis económico.

Resumen (otros idiomas)

José Luis Sampedro self-defined ‘meta-economist’. Maybe because he knew that many economists and international agencies were wrong in recognizing the crisis. Although they rectified and predict a longer and serious crisis, are trustworthy their forecasts? In spite of their cyclical character, crises are difficult to anticipate and manage. Usually, they are related to the unbalanced growth, characteristic of Capitalism. Therefore, the present crisis was seen to come in the measure that, for time, well-known imbalances exist in real estate and financial sectors. Besides, the financial sector has been placed at the top of the control of the other activities; and neo-liberal doctrines have reduced regulatory capacity of public policies. Considering that this crisis may be indicating the end of a stage, we should not forget Sampedro and his lessons on the importance of the split of inequalities. He was a humanist. That is a very import difference with the neo-liberal way of understand our economic and social systems.
