Abstract: This paper is an assessment of Claveau and Gingras’s paper, “Macrodynamics of Economics: A Bibliometric History”. Its contention is that for all its innovative character, bibliometric history cannot replace inside-knowledge history. To make my point, I examine the particular case of the history of macroeconomics by confronting what their paper can say about this history with what an inside-knowledge approach has to offer.
