MOREIRA, Ricardo Ramalhete. Conditional validity of the equilibrium in the General Theory of Keynes. Rev. Econ. Polit. [online]. 2009, vol.29, n.3, pp.153-172. ISSN 1809-4538.

It discusses that the equilibrium in Economics, as a method of analysis, has a conditional utility, when it is not necessary its association with ideal situations and with a constancy of structural parameters of the system. Keynes (1936) appears as an example of a good utilization of that method, for he doesn't link it with notions of social optimum or with a necessary system's structural stability.

Keywords : equilibrium; social optimum; structural change; Keynes.
