Abstract (english):

This article deals with causality as a methodological problem of economics. First it briefly overlooks causality as a philosophical concept. Then it engages in causality in economics from many points of view: (un)usefulness of causality in economics, individuals versus aggregates, causality in theoretical economics and complexity of economies, causality in empirical economics and econometrics. The article concludes that causality is a useful theoretical construction, but can not be revealed on the empirical level by using econometric techniques.
