Is the Austrian view of market process equivalent to the C&Cís statistical equilibrium?
Recently Austrians have tended to talk about correct prices in the limited sense of market-clearing prices instead equilibrium prices. Thatís because the balance of a market economy is a never ended phenomenon derived from entrepreneursí purpose to impede that balance.
In the neo-classical equilibrium entrepreneurs take prices only like data (parameters) and they have to adapt properly, never having the possibility to change or influence on these data. In the neo-classical mind instead of entrepreneurs we have producers who, in the long term, must equalize marginal prices to average costs.
In the Austrian market process entrepreneurs donít only take prices like data but can change prices due to strategies, technology and future prices forecast. The existence of natural monopolies is an empirical proves of imbalance and entrepreneurship.
Austrians put the accent on price channel to transmit information and let the entrepreneurís creativity and local knowledge to search for profitable ways of production. C&C put the accent on objective channels to transmit information about technical data in order to produce use values previously chosen by consumers.
C&C`s statistical equilibrium is too a never ended phenomenon. Thatís because in any form of economic organization what constitute the primary data are on women and mení minds.
So, answering the initial question: yes and no, Ja! Ja! Ja! It seems to be a missing piece in C&C`s statistical equilibrium: the entrepreneurís creativity propelled by rivalry.
Is that good or bad? Thatís the question.
Best regards,
Alejandro Agafonow
