Les débats qui animent los angeles vie économique contemporaine ne peuvent être compris indépendamment de los angeles forme qu'ils ont revêtue dans le passé. remark, par exemple, appréhender les controverses actuelles sur le libéralisme, si l'on forget about que los angeles query de l'interventionnisme de l'Etat partageait déjà les physiocrates et les mercantilistes, qu'elle devait opposer les socialistes utopiques et Marx aux thèses d'Adam Smith et de Ricardo, et que, dans les années 1930, elle allait rebondir avec los angeles «nouvelle donne» keynésienne ? Quand on évoque le communisme, sait-on que Platon en son temps s'est prononcé pour l. a. propriété commune, tandis qu'Aristote était favorable à los angeles propriété privée ? L'histoire de los angeles pensée économique est critical, sauf à imaginer que l'économie puisse se réduire à des modèles mathématiques dont les soubassements doctrinaux et théoriques demeurent des non-dits. L'auteur fait le pari d'un ouvrage bref : une histoire qui ne saurait prétendre à l'exhaustivité, mais qui permet de se faire une vue d'ensemble des grands courants de pensée et de comprendre les filiations, les oppositions, les avancées et les reculs qui jalonnent cette histoire.

This publication reconsiders the function of the Phillips curve in macroeconomic research within the first two decades following the well-known paintings through A W H Phillips, after whom it truly is named. It argues that the tale conventionally advised is solely deceptive. In that tale, Phillips made a superb leap forward yet his paintings resulted in a view that inflationary coverage will be used systematically to keep up low unemployment, and that it used to be simply after the paintings of Milton Friedman and Edmund Phelps a couple of decade after Phillips' that this view was once rejected. to the contrary, an in depth research of the literature of the days exhibits that the belief of a adverse relation among salary switch and unemployment - supposedly Phillips' discovery - used to be general within the 1950, as have been the arguments attributed to Friedman and Phelps via the normal tale. And, possibly most significantly there's scarcely any signal of the belief of the inflation-unemployment tradeoff selling inflationary coverage - both within the theoretical literature or in genuine policymaking. The publication demonstrates and identifies a couple of major strands of the particular contemplating the Nineteen Fifties, Sixties, and Seventies at the query of the selection of inflation and its relation to different variables.
The result's not just a rejection of the Phillips curve tale because it has been instructed, and a reassessment of the certainty of the economists of these years of macroeconomics, but in addition the development of an alternate, and traditionally extra real account of the industrial concept of these occasions. A remarkable final result is that the commercial conception of the time used to be no longer approximately so naive because it has been portrayed.
