Kenneth J. Arrow ( 1921 - 2017)

Premio Nobel nobel_25.gif (2335 bytes)1972

Economista estadounidense, neoyorkino, estudió en el City College y en Columbia. Su tesis doctoral "Social Choice and Individual Values" supuso una revolución teórica. Utilizando el sistema de notación de la lógica simbólica planteó el problema de la intransitividad de las preferencias sociales. El "Teorema de la imposibilidad de Arrow" afirma que no existe una forma democrática de votación que permita una elección social transitiva y racional. La única constitución que permitiría adoptar decisiones estables y no ambiguas sería la de una dictadura unipersonal o cuando las posibilidades de elección se reducen a dos.

Obtuvo el Premio Nobel de Economía en 1972, compartido con el británico John R. Hicks, por sus contribuciones pioneras a la teoría del equilibrio económico general y la teoría del bienestar.
