Libertades económicas y políticas

Becker y Posner tocan un tema recurrente de economía y política:

  • Economic and Political Freedom: Does One Lead to the Other? BECKER
  • Democracy and Free Markets–Posner’s Comment

    Ambos sintetizan muy bien los argumentos de la literatura, pero Becker da un paso en falso cuando afirma:
    The path from political to economic freedom, by contrast, is slower and more uncertain.(…) Mexico has had a free press and considerable political freedom for a century or so, but economic freedoms did not begin to evolve until the latter part of the 1980’s.
    ¡Becker necesita un correctivo!
