    Constructing "the Economy".Margaret Schabas - 2009 - Philosophy of the Social Sciences 39 (1):3-19.
    Economists study "The Economy," or so one might suppose. Yet this overarching entity is strikingly absent from mainstream theory. Since the 1950s, it has generally been described with a few mathematical propositions and not given a description that attends to institutions, power relations, or the emergent properties that form the leading indicators in macroeconomic theory. There is thus a significant divergence between folk economics and scientific economics on this theoretical entity. This article briefly addresses the history of this concept, noting (...)

    Hume’s Monetary Thought Experiments.Margaret Schabas - 2008 - Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part A 39 (2):161-169.
    Contemporary economists deem virtually every piece of reasoning and argumentation in economics a model, forgetting that there may well be other conceptual tools at hand. This article demonstrates that David Hume used thought experiments to make some remarkable breakthroughs in monetary economics, and that this resolves a longstanding debate about an apparent inconsistency in Hume, between the neutrality and non-neutrality of money. In the actual world, money is never neutral for Hume; only in thought experiments does a sudden growth in (...)

    An Assessment of the Scientific Standing of Economics.Margaret Schabas - 1986 - PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1986:298 - 306.
    Economists are still very much in the grip of both operationalism and a reverence for classical mechanics as the science to emulate. Those who have exposed the weaknesses of this approach tend also to dismiss neo-classical economics as devoid of empirical and/or ideological-free content, a move which seems to have been counter-productive. This paper attempts to follow up on the more modest assessment of economics put forth by Allan Gibbard and Hal Varian. Their perspective on economic models suggests that economists (...)
