What Do We Know about Ourselves? on the Economics of Economics

Abstract

Depuis un certain temps, les économistes ont pris conscience du fait que leur propre comportement générait des questions appelant une réponse. Pourquoi, par exemple, les économistes utilisent-ils l'ordre alphabétique des noms lorsqu'ils écrivent un article en collaboration? Par ailleurs, qu'est-ce qui détermine le succès d'un économiste du secteur académique? Ou bien, en quoi étudier l'économie affecte-t-il le comportement? En même temps, les économistes ont également remarqué que la profession générait des données susceptibles d'être utilisées en vue de tester des idées théoriques proposées par les économistes. Dans cet article, l'auteur analyse les travaux de recherche dont l'objet d'étude n'est autre que les économistes. Il s'intéresse en particulier à la formation des économistes, à leurs habitudes en matière de publication ainsi qu'à leur marché du travail. Copyright WWZ and Helbing & Lichtenhahn Verlag AG 2004.
