    The School of Salamanca on Value of Money: A Reassessment.Mohammadhosein Bahmanpour-Khalesi & Mohammadjavad Sharifzadeh - 2023 - Journal des Economistes Et des Etudes Humaines 29 (1):79-96.
    This study endeavors to investigate the theory of the value of money from the vantage point of late scholastic scholars, with a specific focus on the Salamanca School and the two prevailing monetary doctrines: Objectivism (Metallism) and Subjectivism (Chartalism). Our investigation employs the classical works of late scholastic thinkers from the 15th to the 17th centuries to illuminate the perspectives held by the Salamanca School concerning monetary value. The findings affirm that the twofold theory of money value proposed by late (...)

    Legitimate Tax Structures: Lessons from the Past.Enrico Colombatto - 2023 - Journal des Economistes Et des Etudes Humaines 29 (1):1-20.
    Today’s views and analyses about taxation are dominated by the social-welfare approach based on various categories of utilitarianism, most notably those developed by the optimal-tax literature. By contrast, this paper focuses on the ethical foundations of taxation and analyses a tradition that harks back to the 17th century. In particular, we emphasise the notion of legitimate taxation in the history of economic thought from the libertarian, the classical-liberal and socialist perspectives. By means of this very notion, we define the essence (...)

    Clarifying the Analysis of Deadweight Loss from Taxation.Tate Fegley, Kristoffer Mousten Hansen & Karl-Friedrich Israel - 2023 - Journal des Economistes Et des Etudes Humaines 29 (1):61-78.
    The standard microeconomic analysis of taxation suggests that excise taxes on goods with a price-inelastic demand are more efficient in that they lead to a lower deadweight loss than taxes on goods with price-elastic demand. This argument ignores secondary effects on the rest of the economy. By narrowly focusing on the primary effects on the market where the tax is raised, the overall deadweight loss is underestimated when demand is price-inelastic. Moreover, it is overestimated when demand is price-elastic. This puts (...)

    The Poverty of Radical Ecological Economics: A Critique of Clive Spash from the Viewpoint of the Austrian School.Renaud Fillieule - 2023 - Journal des Economistes Et des Etudes Humaines 29 (1):21-43.
    This paper delves into the work of Clive L. Spash, a British radical ecological economist well-known in his field who currently holds a professorship at the Vienna University of Economics and Business. We start with an examination of the principles of his “social ecological economics.” We then critically evaluate his attack on economic growth and his perspective on the standard economic models of climate change. Lastly, we explore his approach to science as a theoretical pursuit and his policy recommendations. The (...)

    The Poverty of Radical Ecological Economics: A Supportive Comment.Erwan Queinnec - 2023 - Journal des Economistes Et des Etudes Humaines 29 (1):45-60.
    This paper builds on the critique that Renaud Filleule addresses in this issue to radical ecological economics – known also as socio-ecological economics (SEE) – and more specifically to the works of one of his most famous representatives, Clive Spash. Filleule builds his critique from Austrian economics. I adopt a broader perspective. Indeed, although Austrian economics identifies key caveats of SEE, one may challenge its whole scientific substance on more general grounds. True, Clive Spash’s works are keen on putting forth (...)
