    What Does Tacit Knowledge Actually Explain?Jonathan Perraton & Iona Tarrant - 2007 - Journal of Economic Methodology 14 (3):353-370.
    The concept of tacit knowledge has come a long way from its origins in Michael Polanyi's work and its championing by Hayek and other Austrian economists. It is now widely, even routinely, cited not only in Austrian economics, but also in institutional economics work, industrial economics and economic geography.

Development economics was one of the few economics sub?disciplines where Marxian approaches were considered to offer a key perspective and had a wider influence on more mainstream analysis.

    Explaining Growth? The Case of the Trade–Growth Relationship.Jonathan Perraton - 2011 - Journal of Economic Methodology 18 (3):283-296.
    This paper provides a critical analysis of the modelling strategies adopted in the trade?growth literature. Despite a huge number of econometric studies, there is a growing dissatisfaction with such studies and serious questions over what exactly has been learnt from them. Econometric work has been criticized for, amongst other things, its lack of clear relationship to underlying theory and questionable use of proxies for trade policy. It is frequently unclear what hypothesis is being tested in this literature. Universalist assumptions of (...)
