Introduction : dossier : Décrire les marchés, un impératif scientifique

Abstract : The first financial market in the world was the 17th-century stock exchange in Amsterdam. Joseph de la Vega’s description of it in his mythic Confusion of Confusions (1688) was the very first analysis of a stock market. As the title states, this writer, a trader in securities, saw the market as a vast disorder that normally produces order but also potentially generates chaos, since the first crashes soon followed on the market’s creation. Instead of a single account of this chaos, various viewpoints are presented. For this purpose, the author chose the form of a dialog between a subtle philosopher, a circumspect merchant and a clever shareholder.
