"The master-economist must possess a rare combination of gifts. He must be mathematician, historian, statesman, philosopher–in some degree. He must understand symbols and speak in words. He must contemplate the particular in terms of the general, and touch abstract and concrete in the same flight of thought. He must study the present in the light of the past for the purposes of the future. No part of man’s nature or his institutions must lie entirely outside his regard. He must be purposeful and disinterested in a simultaneous mood; as aloof and incorruptible as an artist, yet sometimes as near the earth as a politician.", John Maynard Keynes, 'Alfred Marshall: 1842-1924' (1924). Incluído en Essays in Biography (1933).

"Que nosotros los humanos, que también somos meros conjuntos de partículas fundamentales de la naturaleza, hayamos sido capaces de acercarnos tanto a la comprensión de las leyes que nos gobiernan a nosotros mismos y a nuestro Universo es un gran triunfo. Quiero compartir mi emoción y entusiasmo por esta búsqueda. Así que acuérdense de mirar hacia las estrellas y no hacia sus pies. Intenten encontrarle un sentido a lo que ven y pregúntense por aquello que hace que exista el Universo. Sean curiosos. Y por muy difícil que pueda parecerles la vida, siempre hay algo que pueden hacer y en lo que pueden tener éxito. Lo importante es que no se rindan." Stephen Hawking

Clases magistrales: "Crecimiento, Desigualdad y Pobreza"

Presentaciones PowerPoint: Clase 1 ; Clase 2; Clase 3

The real wealth of a nation is its people. And the purpose of development is to create an enabling environment for people to enjoy long, healthy and creative lives. This simple but powerful truth is too often forgotten in the pursuit of material and financial wealth. Mahbub ul Haq, Self Employment Women's Organization SEWA

Poverty is a denial of choices and opportunities, a violación of human dignity. It means lack of basic capacity to participate effectively in society. United Nations.

El capitalismo no puede funcionar si las recompensas privadas no guardan relación con la rentabilidad social. Anónimo.
