Anthropology and Economics: The Argument for a Microeconomic Anthropology

Jerome Ballet ()

Cahiers du GREThA from Groupe de Recherche en Economie Théorique et Appliquée (GREThA)

Abstract: The rapprochement between anthropology and economics is not a new subject of debate. Economic anthropology, whose very survival has largely been attributed to Marxism, remains a minor field of interest within anthropology and perhaps even more so within economics. Over recent years, researchers have argued that anthropology and economics should be interwoven, but few conceptual and empirical analyses have taken up the cause. The aim of this article is to promote a microeconomic anthropology. We discuss a contextual methodology and illustrate its advantages by way of interpersonal transfers.
