  • Donald Charles "Don" Lavoie (April 4, 1951 – November 6, 2001) was an Austrian school economist. He worked at the Cato Institute. He wrote two books on the problem of economic calculation. His first book on this subject was Rivalry and Central Planning (Cambridge University Press 1985). This book stressed the importance of the process of competitive rivalry in markets. His second book was National Economic Planning: What Is Left? (Cambridge, Massachusetts: Ballinger Publishing Company, 1985). This book dealt with the problem of non-comprehensive planning. He was influenced by Friedrich Hayek, Michael Polanyi and Ludwig Lachmann. Among his students, there are a number of "contemporary Austrian" economists: Peter Boettke, David Prychitko, Steven Horwitz, Thomas Rustici, Mark Gilbert, Ralph Rector, Emily Chamlee-Wright, Howie Baetjer and Virgil Storr. Don Lavoie was co-founder of the interdisciplinary unit known as the Program on Social & Organizational Learning at George Mason University which offers a Master's degree in Organizational Learning. Lavoie was awarded a Ph. D. in economics from New York University in 1981 for thesis entitled Rivalry and central planning : a re-examination of the debate over economic calculation under socialism. As a scholar, he studied the philosophy of the social sciences (especially the application of hermeneutics to economics) and Comparative Economic Systems (especially Marxian theories of socialism). Along with Richard Ebeling, Lavoie pioneered the attempt to merge Austrian Economics with philosophical hermeneutics in the late 1980s, and in particular with the hermeneutics of Hans Georg Gadamer. His influence here extended to many of his students mentioned above. His effort drew criticism from several members of the Austrian School associated with the Mises Institute, especially Murray Rothbard and Hans-Hermann Hoppe. As a young professor, he worked on the philosophy and practice of electronically mediated discourse. He knew the importance for organizations of new ways of cultivating interactive learning environments (groupware and hypertext software environments) in order to enhance communicative processes. He showed the fundamental nature of social learning processes, whether in market exchanges, in verbal conversations, or in hypertext-based dialogue. In the book Culture and Enterprise: The Development, Representation and Morality of Business (New York: Routledge, 2000) written with Emily Chamlee-Wright, they take into account the important role of culture in a nation's economic development. Lavoie was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in the spring of 2001. He died of a stroke later that year. (en)
  • Donald Charles "Don" Lavoie (4 de abril de 1951 a 6 de noviembre de 2001) fue un economista estadounidense de la escuela austriaca. Trabajó en el Instituto Cato. Escribió dos libros sobre el problema del cálculo económico. Su primer libro sobre este tema fue Rivalry and Central Planning (Cambridge University Press, 1985). Este libro hizo hincapié en la importancia del proceso de la rivalidad competitiva en los mercados. Su segundo libro fue National Economic Planning: What Is Left? (Cambridge, Massachusetts: Ballinger Publishing Company, 1985). Este libro aborda el problema de la planificación no exhaustiva. Fue influenciado por Friedrich Hayek, Michael Polanyi y Ludwig Lachmann. Entre sus estudiantes, hay una serie de "contemporáneos" economistas austriacos: Peter Boettke, David Prychitko, Steven Horwitz, Thomas Rustici, Mark Gilbert, Ralph Rector, Emily Chamlee-Wright, Howie Baetjer y Virgilio Storr. Don Lavoie fue co-fundador de la unidad interdisciplinaria conocida como el Programa de Aprendizaje Social y Organizacional de la George Mason University, que ofrece una Maestría en Aprendizaje Organizacional. Lavoie fue galardonado con un doctorado en economía de la Universidad de Nueva York en 1981 para su tesis titulada "La rivalidad y la planificación central: Un nuevo examen del debate sobre el cálculo económico en el socialismo". Como académico estudió la filosofía de las ciencias sociales (especialmente la aplicación de la hermenéutica a la economía) y sistemas económicos comparados (especialmente las teorías marxistas del socialismo). Junto con Richard Ebeling, Lavoie fue pionero en el intento de fusión de la economía austriaca con la hermenéutica filosófica a finales de 1980, y en particular con la hermenéutica de Hans Georg Gadamer. Su influencia aquí se extendió a muchos de sus estudiantes antes mencionados. Su esfuerzo fue criticado por varios miembros de la escuela Austríaca asociada con el Instituto Mises, especialmente Murray Rothbard y Hans-Hermann Hoppe. Cuando era un joven profesor, trabajó en la filosofía y práctica del discurso electrónicamente mediado. Sabía de la importancia para las las organizaciones de las nuevas formas de cultivar los ambientes de aprendizaje interactivos (entornos de trabajo en grupo y de software de hipertexto) con el fin de mejorar los procesos comunicativos. Mostró la naturaleza fundamental de los procesos de aprendizaje social, ya sea en los intercambios de mercado, en conversaciones verbales, o en el diálogo basado en hipertexto. En el libro Culture and Enterprise: The Development, Representation and Morality of Business (Nueva York: Routledge, 2000) escrito con Emily Chamlee-Wright, tienen en cuenta el importante papel de la cultura en el desarrollo económico de una nación. Lavoie fue diagnosticado con cáncer de páncreas en la primavera de 2001, murió de un accidente cerebrovascular más tarde en ese año. (es)
  • Ha scritto diversi articoli per il Cato Institute. Ha scritto anche due libri sul problema del calcolo economico: il primo si intitola Rivalry and Central Planning (1985) e enfatizzava l'importanza della rivalità concorrenziale in un mercato libero, mentre il secondo, intitolato National Economic Planning: What Is Left? e sempre pubblicato nel 1985, criticava ogni tipo di economia pianificata. Il suo pensiero è stato fortemente influenzato da Friedrich von Hayek, Michael Polanyi e Ludwig Lachmann. Tra i suoi studenti ci sono stati diversi "austriaci", tra i quali ricordiamo Peter Boettke, David Prychitko, Steve Horwitz, Tom Rustici, Mark Gilbert, Ralph Rector, Emily Chamlee-Wright, Howie Baetjer e Virgil Storr. Don Lavoie è stato cofondatore dell'unità interdisciplinare della George Mason University denominata on Social & Organizational Learning. Da un punto di vista degli studi la sua attenzione cadde prevalentemente sulla filosofia (studiò in particolar modo l'applicazione della ermeneutica all'economia) e sulla comparazione di diversi sistemi economici, quello marxista su tutti. In Culture and Enterprise: The Development, Representation and Morality of Business (2000), libro scritto insieme a Emily Chamlee-Wright, mise in rilievo l'importanza della cultura nello sviluppo economico di un paese. Nella primavera del 2001 gli venne diagnosticato un cancro al pancreas. Scomparve dopo meno di un anno. (it)
