FEIJO, Ricardo Luis Chaves. A nova disciplina de sistemas econômicos comparados: uma proposta. Rev. Econ. Polit. [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.1, pp.116-135. ISSN 1809-4538.

The new discipline of comparative economic systems: a proposition. This article offers elements for a reorientation of the subject matter of the discipline " Comparative Economic Systems" with the impact of the fall of the Berlin’s wall. Thus, we argue that in the context of the modern democratic society the political choice between society models occurs in a narrower set of options. Thus the study of pure forms of socialism is of historical interest, but he is not relevant to this discipline since it must prioritize the debate around the choice of compatible alternative models within the rule of law. So the article offers a new program for this discipline, able to describe and to understand the diversity of systems between countries that had opted for mixing market economy.

Keywords : Comparative Economic Systems; Socialism; Liberalism; Democracy.
