James S. Duesenberry ( 1918-2009 )

James S. DuesenberryJames S. Duesenberry, nacido en Princeton, WV, estudi y obtuvo el doctorado en la Universidad de Michigan. Fue profesor en Harvard y el MIT. Actualmente es profesor emrito de Dinero y Banca en el Departamento de Economa de la Universidad de Harvard.

En 1949 propuso una funcin de consumo de tipo keynesiano argumentando que el comportamiento de consumo crea hbito y proponiendo que los individuos aumentan su consumo al aumentar las rentas pero que tienen dificultades para reducir su consumo en la misma proporcin cuando la renta disminuye.

Posteriormente, en 1958, y siguiendo un razonamiento similar, hace una contribucin al acelerador y la teora keynesiana de los ciclos. Para Duesenberry, la inversin depende de los niveles histricos alcanzados por la renta y el capital.

Falleci el 5 de octubre de 2009.
