English abstract

Key features of the financial system as an information system which links markets’ stakeholders are highlighted and discussed. These features are related to the 2008 subprime crisis, and they are contextualized in sociotechnical changes at the end of the 20th century. Ways to improve the system and prevent future crisis are briefly explored, taking into account information behaviours, which differ from mainstream economics.

Spanish abstract

Se apuntan y discuten características clave del sistema financiero como sistema de información que relaciona a los implicados en los mercados, como consecuencia de la crisis subprime de 2008. Estas características se sitúan en el contexto de los cambios sociotécnicos de finales del siglo XX. Se exploran vías de mejora y prevención de futuras crisis incorporando aspectos de comportamiento informacional, alternativas a la ortodoxia económica.
