On se demande en quel sens il serait permis de décrire comme progressives les transformations qu'a connues l'économie normative du 20ème siècle. On propose alors un critère simple de progrès qui convienne aux séquences de théories normatives, et on le fait jouer sur la transition historique de la nouvelle économie du bien-être à la théorie du choix social. Après avoir rétabli les articulations conceptuelles des deux théories, l'article conclut que celle-ci a représenté un progrès par rapport à celle-là. Il commente aussi, mais plus brièvement, les développements récents de l'économie normative et leur relation avec les deux étapes précédentes.
