PUBLIC GOODS, EXTERNALITIES, PUBLIC DECISION MAKING:
A PERSPECTIVE FROM THE HISTORY OF ECONOMIC THOUGHT
Paris, 11-13 December 2008
During the past three decades there have been important developments in the
history of economic thought, opening many theoretical fields to historical
scrutiny. Public economics has not however been subjected to systematic
investigation. Nonetheless, leading theoreticians such as Richard Musgrave and
Alan Peacock have shown how the history of economics can be useful and
productive not only as a specialized field per se, but also as a means to an
improved understanding of modern concepts and theoretical elaboration — even
providing a source of inspiration for new ideas. Two historical surveys were
published more than twenty years ago — by John Creedy in 1984 and Richard
Musgrave in 1985 — but there has since been little new historical research in this
area.
It is therefore proposed to hold an international conference on the history of
public economics to stimulate new historical research on the development of core
concepts, models and issues in modern public economics. All topics relevant to
the domain of Public Economics, broadly understood, are welcome, including:
theory of the state, public expenditure and revenue, public decision-making,
regulation, externalities, social security and insurance, equity, justice, and also

study of national traditions of thought in the field. Historical perspectives on
public economics from other disciplines — for example the philosophy of law
and political philosophy — are also sought.
The conference will take place in Paris, at ERMES and Panthéon-Assas
University. It will be supported by the ESF programme Public goods, public
projects, externalities, in collaboration with ERMES (UMR CNRS 7181) and The
European Journal of the History of Economic Thought (EJHET).
The keynote speaker will be Alan PEACOCK.
