Some Preliminaries Options on Clément Juglar’s Economic Writings First Editorial Project




  • Ludovic FROBERT



The team which has proposed three years ago a critical revival of Clément Juglar contribution and nowadays the edition of his texts, has been led rather quickly to admit that if there is no doubt that Juglar contributed to modern business cycles theory, his reputation clearly surpassed his effective scientific influence on this specific field. In general, the conception our contemporaries can have about Juglar’s approach is misleading that they consider on the one side that his contribution is one of the major ones for modern business cycles theory, or on the other side, that they focus on the papers dealing with periodicity of crises and then ignoring the greatest part of his work and then having very limited knowledge and comprehension of the nature of his general approach. Understanding Juglar’s approach implies to take into account his training as a physician, the context in which he initiated the use of statistics via his analysis of population growth, his interest for monetary theory, essential for the understanding as well as the identification of the cycles, and finally, the role of his religious faith in his view of the nature of the economic and social movement. Our worry to resituate the fundamental nature of Juglar’s contribution did not prevent us to operate few choices. It is the determinants of those choices about the edition we are working on which are examined and justified in this article.
