Abstract

This paper deals with the debate between “property” and “possession”, hosted by the Journal of Institutional Economics since early 2015. According to Hodgson, economists conflate these two terms involving important consequences on the discernment of the analysis and on the general scope of the economics of property rights. In the same journal, Allen and Barzel only concede semantics significance to the Hodgson’s critics. We analyze the whys and wherefores of this debate and discuss its paradigmatic dimension.
