Schütz and the Rational Choice Debate in African Economics

Schütz and the Rational Choice Debate in African Economics Neo-Austrians in the USA have produced a specific interpretation of Schütz as a mediator between the Austrian school of economics and European phenomenology or phenomenological sociology. Seeing Schütz as a political and economic scientist who, moreover, could give a new orientation to African political economy is at stake in our contribution. The purpose of this paper is to contribute to filling in a gap between my interest for African development economics and Austrian-Schützian economics. By doing so, I want to contribute to the efforts of the NIE school, which aims at challenging the previous neo-classical approach of the World Bank intervention in Africa.
