It shows scholastic considerations on market self-regulation, trade, fair price, value theory, competition, property, inflation and the value of money. The University of Salamanca deserves prominence both because it was the cradle of free market economic theories and because it tried to reconcile economic ideas with the moral and historical bases of Judeo-Christian matrix, which always guided the scholastic thinkers. Through bibliographical and historical research, both of primary sources and of later studies, the present work shows the scholastic roots of contemporary economic schools of thought and<br>the relationship between the concepts they use and their original authors.</p> 2019-08-19T23:06:40+00:00 Copyright (c) The history of money 2019-09-06T18:20:06+00:00 Marcel Pereira Bernardo Rodrigo Braian Nori Luan Vinícius Bernardelli <p>Most of the economic literature asserts that money arose because of the division of labor and with the purpose of overcoming the problem of double coincidence of wants. However, ethnography presents other considerations, demonstrating that there is no evidence of any society hitherto known which first bartered and then created money. The present article intends to explore the clash between two different fields of knowledge regarding the origins of money, pointing out converging elements proved by theoretical and historical evidence.</p> 2019-08-19T22:59:09+00:00 Copyright (c) Catholic Social Teaching and the Free-Market 2019-09-06T18:19:31+00:00 Andre Borges Uliano <p class="western" align="justify">This paper aims to analyze whether the free market and the lessons of the Catholic Church’s Social Doctrine are compatible or not. To this end, the study initially indicates the essential elements for the existence of a free market economy, according to liberal economic approach of mainline economics. Then, it analyzes each of these elements and what Catholic social teaching documents speak about them. The paper concludes that there is theoretical compatibility, but not identity, between economic liberalism and Catholic Social Doctrine, since it can be compatible with other economic systems too.</p> 2019-08-19T22:51:43+00:00 Copyright (c) The origins of the antitrust movement 2019-09-06T18:20:43+00:00 Joao Felipe Rodrigues Lanza Thomas J. DiLorenzo <p>Several contemporary studies have highlighted the need to introduce competition in the transport, energy industries, as well as other markets held to be natural monopolies due to the inefficiency generated by government-regulated monopolies. However, little has been studied on the consequences of the regulation known as antitrust law; it dates back to a protectionist political process from the late 19th century, which laid the foundations for most government regulation on several industries accused of monopoly practices. The present article has studied the origins of the antitrust movement as a political initiative, analyzed the evidences of the industries accused of monopolization, and has proven the research hypothesis that antitrust<br>laws and their derivatives have actually restricted competition more than improved market performance by correcting alleged “market failures”.</p> 2019-08-19T22:42:25+00:00 Copyright (c) Market failures in the airport sector and counterposition of the neoclassic vision with the austrian school and public choice alternatives 2019-09-06T18:18:34+00:00 João Fernando Rossi Mazzoni <p>The goal of the present work is to analyze the economic regulation issue applied to the airport sector, conciliating visions of three currents of economic thought on the subject. It will present the characteristics of the market failures in the neoclassical perspective, representative of the economic mainstream, and the problems of trying to regulate the sector from the perspective of two different schools of economic thought, focusing on the vision of the Austrian School of Economics and some insights of the Public Choice School.</p> 2019-08-19T22:34:01+00:00 Copyright (c)
