Estado, movimentos sociais e reformas na América Latina: uma reflex?o sobre a crise contemporanea
Possas, Cristina;
Physis: Revista de Saúde Coletiva , 1992, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-73311992000100007
Abstract: taking as a reference point current patterns in relationships between society and the state, the article discusses social protection systems and prospects for social reforms in latin america. two approaches found in the literature on this topic are analyzed and questioned. in classifying the region's different social protection systems, the firstapproach adoptstypologiesreferred to the different modalities of welfare state. the second identifies a supposed crisis of the welfare state on the international stage, one that is seen as necessrily expressed in latin american social protection systems through the extension of the neoliberal economic conception to this field. based on a conceptual discussion and empirical references, the author questions both approaches andconcludes by attempting to show that latin america's complex reality demands a theoretical and methodological treatment compatible with the scenario of structural heterogeneity prevalent in this region.
Economia evolucionária neo-schumpeteriana: elementos para uma integra??o micro-macrodinamica
Possas, Mario Luiz;
Estudos Avan?ados , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-40142008000200021
Abstract: the ancient approach from economics to darwinian evolution has lately received some more finished proposals: on the one hand the "universal darwinism" (hodgson), to whose meta-theory economics should be supposed to subject itself, with serious limits pointed out in the text; on the other hand, the evolutionary neo-schumpeterian analogy (nelson & winter), more fruiful. the latter may develop into integrated micro-macrodynamic models, capable of providing a richer realization of the evolutionary approach.
Maria da Concei??o Tavares
Possas, Maria Silvia;
Estudos Avan?ados , 2001, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-40142001000300028
Abstract: maria da concei??o tavares has had a great influence on brazilian economic thought. among the various subjects she treated, there has been a major concern present in all her work, namely, the development of "peripheral" countries (especially brazil) and the fate of large contingents of its peoples that are economically excluded. her theoretical matrix was the ideas originated in ecla, which emphasized power and economic relations among "central" and "peripheral" nations. she tried to rebuild this matrix, augmenting the importance of questions such as: variables that were internal to each country, specially the presence of a capital goods department; the need of funds to finance development and the consequences of the historical specific institutions and ways used to provide them.
Social ecosystem health: confronting the complexity and emergence of infectious diseases
Possas, Cristina de Albuquerque;
Cadernos de Saúde Pública , 2001, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-311X2001000100003
Abstract: the emergence and re-emergence of infectious diseases and their rapid dissemination worldwide are challenging national health systems, particularly in developing countries affected by extreme poverty and environmental degradation. the expectations that new vaccines and drugs and global surveillance would help reverse these trends have been frustrated thus far by the complexity of the epidemiological transition, despite promising prospects for the near future in biomolecular research and genetic engineering. this impasse raises crucial issues concerning conceptual frameworks supporting priority-setting, risk anticipation, and the transfer of science and technology's results to society. this article discusses these issues and the limitations of social and economic sciences on the one hand and ecology on the other as the main theoretical references of the health sciences in confronting the complexity of these issues on their own. the tension between these historically dissociated paradigms is discussed and a transdisciplinary approach is proposed, that of social ecosystem health, incorporating these distinct perspectives into a comprehensive framework.

Elementos para uma integra o Micro-macrodinamica na Teoria do Desenvolvimento Econ mico
Mario Luiz Possas
Revista Brasileira de Inova??o , 2002,
Abstract: The purpose of this essay is to suggest a mix of Neo-Schumpeterian and Post-Keynesian elements that might turn possible an integration of micro and macro dynamical features, so as to support a non-orthodox reconstruction of the Theory of Economic Development. Mutually compatible theoretical issues are acknowledged and briefly discussed, such as uncertainty (“hard” or “fundamental”) and structural instability (without equilibrium), on the structural side, as well as behavioural ones such as bounded or procedural rationality. The evolutionary Neo-Schumpeterian approach for the dynamics of firms and markets is shortly reviewed, followed by some wellknown dynamic properties stemming from the principle of effective demand, of Kaleckian and Keynesian origin – e.g. multiplier and accelerator effects, among others. It is argued that their integration may provide the basis for a dynamic theory in which micro and macro analytical levels blend naturally. Such integration will certainly require a disaggregate, multisectoral dynamic analysis and instruments. In addition, simulation models should be employed, given the absence of equilibrium assumptions together with the presence of stochastic variables at the micro level, related to evolutionary processes, especially those of innovative and competitive content.

Abstract: The emergence and re-emergence of infectious diseases and their rapid dissemination worldwide are challenging national health systems, particularly in developing countries affected by extreme poverty and environmental degradation. The expectations that new vaccines and drugs and global surveillance would help reverse these trends have been frustrated thus far by the complexity of the epidemiological transition, despite promising prospects for the near future in biomolecular research and genetic engineering. This impasse raises crucial issues concerning conceptual frameworks supporting priority-setting, risk anticipation, and the transfer of science and technology's results to society. This article discusses these issues and the limitations of social and economic sciences on the one hand and ecology on the other as the main theoretical references of the health sciences in confronting the complexity of these issues on their own. The tension between these historically dissociated paradigms is discussed and a transdisciplinary approach is proposed, that of social ecosystem health, incorporating these distinct perspectives into a comprehensive framework.
