"Be Quiet" mais modérement : le rôle de l'Etat dans la pensée économique de Jeremy Bentham
This paper aims at showing that the tradition which uses to connect Bentham's utilitarianism with economic liberalism neglects the peculiarity of an approach for which economics is by no way autonomous to legislation. In this respect, we must underline the importance of information problems. Although they justify the non-intervention of the State, as long as we only consider the economic ends - " subsistence " and " abondance " -, they also lead to interventionist conclusions, each time a lack of information brings an uncertainty, threatening the end of " safety " and, more generally, the specific ends of the " legislation ".
