Abstract

La critique d'ad hocite est courante en economie, mais elle reste confuse, reposant aussi bien sur des arguments d'ordre heuristique (fondements microéconomiques), que sur des arguments d'ordre empirique (ajustement d'une theorie aux faits). Si l'epistemologie d'inspiration popperienne fournit des definitions utiles, quoique discutables, de l'ad hocite, une revue de quelques commentaires recents revele un autre sens attribue par les economistes : une hypothese qui manque de fondements empiriques tout en etant essentielle a la derivation de certaines conclusions. Nous cherchons ensuite a determiner dans quelle mesure les theories de la croissance endogene sont exposees a la critique d'ad hocite.
