L'analytique et le synthétique en économie

  • Philippe Mongin

    (CECO - Laboratoire d'econometrie de l'école polytechnique - CNRS : UMR7657 - Polytechnique - X)

L'article se propose d'appliquer à l'économie la distinction, classique en philosophie des sciences, des propositions analytiques et synthétiques. Après avoir brièvement repris la théorie de cette distinction, il la fait jouer sur deux exemples micro-économiques (les définitions des biens Giffen et des biens substituts) et un exemple macro-économique (celui de l'équation quantitative de la monnaie). Il conclut que la distinction permet de clarifier, généralement sans les heurter, les distinctions spontanées des économistes. Dans le cas des biens substituts, elle permet de révéler au grand jour les difficultés de la définition hicksienne.
