L'économie historique dans la Revue Economique. Du programme à la réalisation


  • Christian Morrisson


[eng] Economic history in the "Revue Economique". From programme to realisation This article assesses articles in economic history published in the Revue Economique over the last 50 years starting from a statistic of articles published by decade and their classification according to country and period surveyed, to topics of economic history, to statistical techniques used and to their use of theory, modelisation and econometric tests. In spite of a wide reaching original aim of collaboration between historians and economists, few articles were published in the 1960s and 1970s except in special issues devoted to this topic. In the last 20 years however, the number of such articles increased together with a growing use of quantitative methods and a better integration of theory and empirical analysis resorting sometimes to econometrics. When compared with other French periodicals or with foreign ones, RE fares relatively well, with its economic history articles, even if more could be done for integrating the two disciplines. [fre] Cet article dresse le bilan des articles d'histoire économique parus dans la Revue économique depuis cinquante ans, à partir d'un comptage des articles par décennie et de leur classement selon la période et le pays étudiés, selon les thèmes considérés, selon les techniques statistiques utilisées et selon le recours à la théorie, à la modélisation et aux tests économétriques. Malgré un objectif ambitieux de collaboration entre historiens et économistes, il y a peu d'articles dans les années 1960-1970, en dehors des numéros spéciaux, qui ont poursuivi cet objectif. Mais depuis vingt ans, le nombre d'articles augmente et ils témoignent d'une utilisation croissante des techniques quantitatives et d'une meilleure intégration de la théorie et de l'analyse empirique et recourent parfois à l'économétrie. Une comparaison avec d'autres revues françaises et des revues étrangères montre que la RE se classe honorablement pour ces articles d'histoire économique, même s'il serait possible de faire plus pour l'intégration des deux disciplines.
