By Jacques Valier

Les débats qui animent l. a. vie économique contemporaine ne peuvent être compris indépendamment de los angeles forme qu'ils ont revêtue dans le passé. remark, par exemple, appréhender les controverses actuelles sur le libéralisme, si l'on forget about que l. a. query de l'interventionnisme de l'Etat partageait déjà les physiocrates et les mercantilistes, qu'elle devait opposer les socialistes utopiques et Marx aux thèses d'Adam Smith et de Ricardo, et que, dans les années 1930, elle allait rebondir avec los angeles «nouvelle donne» keynésienne ? Quand on évoque le communisme, sait-on que Platon en son temps s'est prononcé pour l. a. propriété commune, tandis qu'Aristote était favorable à los angeles propriété privée ? L'histoire de los angeles pensée économique est crucial, sauf à imaginer que l'économie puisse se réduire à des modèles mathématiques dont les soubassements doctrinaux et théoriques demeurent des non-dits. L'auteur fait le pari d'un ouvrage bref : une histoire qui ne saurait prétendre à l'exhaustivité, mais qui permet de se faire une vue d'ensemble des grands courants de pensée et de comprendre les filiations, les oppositions, les avancées et les reculs qui jalonnent cette histoire.

The students had heard that I knew Galbraith and so they asked me to invite him. I suggested that three weeks is not a big window of opportunity for someone as well known as Galbraith. Nevertheless I would try. I phoned Ken and invited him. He indicated that his calendar was very full and he did not think he could make it. ’ Without a moment’s hesitation, Ken replied ‘Great! ’ Within a few hours, the details had been worked out and Galbraith came within the week. He even paid his own travel expenses so that the entire $2000 could go to help launch the JPKE.

And yet Where Do Galbraith’s Ideas Come From? 27 the seeds of today’s world – our world – were already present then: industry, technology and science were creating a new mode of production; cities were exploding in number and size, with uneasy mixtures of extreme wealth and extreme poverty side by side; and migration, mass education and mass entertainment together were giving birth to unprecedented new forms and possibilities for individual identity and community. It was a world, in short, in the throes of change – in many ways far greater changes than those of the past twenty years, when talk of post-industrialism, the new economy, and the revolutionary impact of computers, the internet, and biotechnology have been all the rage.
