Not Everything that can be Counted Counts: Historiographic Reflections on Quantifying Economics




The REhPERE is a research group of the Centre d’Économie de la Sorbonne (CES), a research unit of the French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) and of the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. Within the CES, the REhPERE belongs to the department of Political Economy.

Our research topics mainly focus on the evolution of economics after World War II. Our works aim at investigating the relation between economics and other sciences, and at exploring the epistemological and philosophical consequences of these changes. Hence, we address among other topics: the shift in the understanding of economic rationality; the changing role of methodological individualism; the new conceptions of (in)equalities; the role of State intervention; the relation between economic theories and economic policies.

Currently, research work of the REhPERE includes four topics: History of recent macroeconomics and macroeconomic expertise; Economics and psychology; Labour economics and inequalities; Public economics.
