The primary goal of L’Économie Politique is to foster public discussion on economic policies. Today, this debate is largely monopolized by technical decision-makers in government ministries and the restricted circle of specialists around them. Today our journal is also asking questions about the foundations of the economy as a social reality and as a discourse on society. It regularly publishes articles and special sections on the history and future of economics. Understanding economics implies comparing and contrasting other discourses seeking to explain social reality. This is why the journal publishes the work of sociologists, historians, geographers, political scientists, and international relations specialists insofar as they contribute to clarifying the workings of economics.
The following persons have contributed articles to L’Économie Politique:
Michel Aglietta, Jean-François Bayart, Robert Boyer, Daniel Cohen, Umberto Eco, Barry Eichengreen, Jean-Paul Fitoussi Marc Flandreau, Paul Krugman, André Orléan, Dani Rodrik, Juliet Schor, Joseph Stiglitz, etc.
