Abstract

L'économie du bien-être a beaucoup évolué au cours du XXième siècle, jusqu'à entrer, disent certains, dans une impasse qui lui est fatale. Les controverses sur la possibilité et la pertinence des comparaisons interpersonnelles de bien-être sont réputées permettre d'expliquer cette évolution. Nous opposons à cette lecture standard une autre explication, essentiellement épistémologique et liée aux interprétations plus ou moins opérationnalles de l'utilité. Des conséquences importantes découlent de cette option, notamment quant au rôle de l'économie du bien-être dans l'action publique.
