(As heretical as economics can be)
Is economics a science capable of establishing objective truths and neutrality in fact-finding and analysis? By dismantling preconceived ideas, by providing factual elements, is it not possible to provide a different approach to the liberal policies that are being pursued? And does our generation not have the urgent task of fighting on several fronts at once, around a project including the energy transition, the revival of public services or the denunciation of finance?
Thomas Porcher has a doctorate in economics, is an associate professor at the Paris School of Business and a member of ‘Les Economistes atterrés’. His unorthodox analysis of liberal economics makes firewood of the doxa and preconceived ideas concerning the hegemony of economics over the organisation of contemporary societies.
