Abstract

The conference addressed two logical canons, I.e. induction and deduction, applied in economic research in the United States and in France respectively. The issue at hand was to try and shed light on the origin of these two research methodologies and the harmonization of their use in the two countries. This is a report of the conference proceedings and findings.
