Cet article revient sur les liens entre la loi psychologique fondamentale de Keynes et la théorie du choix intertemporel. Nous démontrons dans un modèle de choix intertemporel à deux périodes que dès lors que l'utilité est additivement intertemporellement séparable la loi psychologique fondamentale est un résultat partagé de la théorie keynésienne et de la théorie du choix intertemporel. Nous montrons ensuite qu'il ne s'agit pas d'un hasard et nous revenons ensuite sur l'analyse de la théorie générale de Keynes ainsi que sur celle du contexte dans lequel elle a été élaborée pour discuter l'identité du cadre d'analyse, et peut-être même de la méthode analytique, entre la théorie keynésienne de la consommation et la théorie du choix intertemporel.
