    « Le monde a le tort de ne pas se découper exactement suivant les frontières qui séparent les spécialistes. » (J.K. Galbraith). Cette étude essaie de soutenir l’importance pour la science économique de retrouver les préoccupations des fondateurs, d’ajouter aux connaissances spécialisées plus d’attention à celles qui embrassent les liens d’ensemble, de revenir à l’économie politique, là où il faut dépasser les questions particulières, variées, atteindre le travail en général, la difficulté à mettre en oeuvre ce travail général, et poser la problématique de la mobilisation comme telle. “The world to its discredit does not divide neatly along the lines that separate the specialists.”(J.K. Galbraith). This survey tries to defend the importance for economics to recover proceedings of founders, to add to specialized knowledge more attention on those that grasp universal ties, to come back to the political economy, where it is necessary to go beyond particular, varied questions, to reach labour in general, reach the difficulties to implement this general labour, and set the problematic of the mobilization as such.
