Elinor Ostrom, the sign of the times Teodulo Lopez Melendez you may remember my continuous affirmation the primacy of economics over politics has been one of the causes of most of the ills that have originated in modernity as it applies to the social impoverishment. I have thus claimed that politics must regain its primacy over policy and pointed out that this is one of the desirable characteristics to the global world in birth. For even more details, read what Anu Saad says on the issue. The fact that a political scientist win the Nobel Prize in economics indicates, I believe, a sign of this reordering of priorities. It might also be called Dr. Ostrom a socieconomista, because it is valid now talk of science which are interwoven and form new specialties. The economy may not be where the social is diluted in the macroeconomic or where systems are not prioritized to the true man, being a cold science object from any political action.
In case outside little, Elinor Ostrom has been devoted to institutional diversity, action collectively, the land use and the theory of public action, among other topics where has laid a real school. The Nobel win by his demonstrations of how common property can be managed effectively by a group of users. In other words, Ostrom deviates from classical economics. His work has influenced biologists, considerations relating to ecosystems and the development of the thesis of what has been called Commons. A simplistic vision of economic systems never took into account the immense opportunity to existing between the market and the interventionist policies of the centralist States. The Commons is the construction of individuals and groups that generate wealth in new forms of property and with mechanisms which differ from mere capitalism.
