Abstract

A tanulmány a közgazdaságtanban gyakori módszertani törekvést vizsgálja arra, hogy lehetőség szerint minél több összefüggést kvantitatív formában ábrázoljanak. Itt kulcskérdés, hogy a tények tükrözésének a természettudományokban megszokott módszerei milyen feltételekkel állják meg helyüket a társadalomtudományokban. A tanulmány statisztikai, majd kliometriai példákkal szemlélteti e törekvések néhány korlátját, és hangsúlyozza a "kvantitatív" és az "álkvantitatív" megközelítések közötti különbségtétel fontosságát a közgazdasági elemzések megítélésében.* Journal of Economic Literature (JEL ) kód: A12, B23, B25, B41, B52, N01.
