Módszertan és relevancia a közgazdaságtanban. A mai közgazdaságtan és a társtudományok
[Methodology and relevancy in economics. Today s economics and associated sciences]

  • Csaba, László
Registered author(s):

    A tanulmány négy kérdést vizsgál. Először a tapasztalattól - az életidegenség terjedésétől - az okok felé haladva magyarázatot keres a világ égetővé vált gazdasági nehézségei és a mai közgazdasági elméletet eluraló technicista ortodoxia nyomán létrejött meg nem felelésre. Az uralkodó megközelítés egyoldalúan axiomatikus, és kizárólag a formalizálás belső szabályait követi, egyben olyan feltételezésekre és eszközökre épül(t), amelyeket több más szaktudomány (különösen a természettudomány) az elmúlt évtizedekben egyértelműen meghaladott. Másodszor azt a kérdést járja körül, hogy miképpen és miért jött létre a világban vezető lapokat eluralt módszertani kizárólagosság, magát az elméletet és a kutatás sajátos vizsgálati tárgyát is gyakorta kiszorítva. Harmadszor az a kérdés vetődik fel, hogy az elmúlt idők kudarcai és a hatásukra a korábban mellőzött irányokba is nyitó főáram egymásra hatása létrehoz-e évtizedes szinten kuhni értelemben vett paradigmaváltást. Válaszunk tagadó. Negyedikként saját, az önmérsékletet és a társtudományok eredményeinek jobb érvényesítését célzó javaslataink és az ebből adódó módszertani sokszínűség szükségessége mellett érvelünk. A kifejtés közben nem egy-egy önkényesen kiragadott tankönyv vagy iskola, hanem a közgazdasági Nobel-díjasok nyomán haladva határozzuk meg a tudományág határait és teljesítményét is. Journal of Economic Literature (JEL) kód: A1, B2.
