The increasing number of articles devoted to economics and especially to the «new economy » between 1999 and 2000 in France raises the question of the vulgarization of economics in the newspapers. We examined five French national daily newspapers, two weekly magazines, and one daily local newspaper between the years 1999 and 2000. We compared the newspapers contents with the articles of vulgarisation on natural science and economics. At last we studied the common points it shares with the hygienist literature of the 19th centuries.
