    [eng] The Revue Economique (1950-1980) and the rise of mainstream economics The paper studies the birth, functioning and content of a leading French economic journal during three decades. The founders of the journal were in favour of a pluridisplinary approach in which political economy would be connected to history and sociology: they were not successful in this respect. Based on a study of the content of the journal, this paper stresses the sharp rise of mainstream economics in the journal during the 60's, and examines some caracterisees of the related authors. However, two currents of thought (école de la régulation and économistes des conventions) connected to the journal, are still advocating ideas in line with the initial aim of the Revue économique. [fre] Cet article étudie la formation, le fonctionnement et le contenu de la Revue économique au cours des trente premières années de son existence. Le projet initial des fondateurs était fortement orienté par une vision pluridisciplinaire où l'économie devait rencontrer l'histoire et la sociologie. Mais ce projet n'a pas pu s'inscrire durablement dans l'économie politique française au sortir de la seconde guerre mondiale. En étudiant le contenu de la revue, l'article fait apparaître la montée de l'économie politique standard dans les pages de la revue à partir du milieu des années 1960 et examine les auteurs qui en sont à l'origine. Néanmoins, l'examen de la revue montre aussi que cette période n'est pas sans laisser place à des courants de pensée contemporains qui retrouvent certaines des idées des fondateurs.
