This lecture aims to problematize the knowledge established on the economy in Palestine. In doing so, it discusses different paradigmatic approaches and reports on their treatment of the colonial reality. Among these approaches, dualism and economism are part of the same grammar – still dominant today – which reduces economic relations to the sole limits of the market and disregards the conflicts and powers that are established even in the economy. Other works undertaken by economists, historians, sociologists and anthropologists, offer alternative approaches and valuable material for thinking differently about economic activity in this field.
