Latest news - February 7th, 2017

I updated my presentation a bit. Sorry I do not have more time to update this website!

Latest news - July 23th, 2014

A few changes in my presentation above. I will upload the new list of semimars of axis 1 here at the end of September. In the meantime, enjoy your holidays!

December 10th, 2013

I don't really have time for updating this website too often. Nevertheless, I updated my own presentation a bit. Here is some important information I wanted to share:

- The list of seminars of the axis 1 of the CEPN in 2013-2014 can now be found below. It all starts in January 2014 (see below, file "séminaires axe1"). The file is in French but it is easily understandable. Most of the seminars will be in English. And as usual, I am pretty much excited about this new season and I look forward to seeing you there!

- Here is the link to a most interesting joint project we have with fellow economists and computer scientists, MACME (modeling and analysis of complex monetary economies). I am very excited about this project which very much summarizes the kind of research I would like to do over the next few years with the other persons involved in this project. The project combines Post-keynsesian economics, agent-based systems and various exciting fields of computer science. I do hope this project will be funded.

- The deadline for applying to the EPOG Erasmus Mundus program is getting close (it is January 22nd, 2014). So if you are a good undergraduate student, please don't miss it!

I may not update this website again for a little while so let me wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

October 11th, 2010.

The symposium of the appalled economists went very well - it was a great success!

Another reason to be appalled is the so-called "Nobel price" awarded today to three hard Neoclassicals: Pissarides, Mortensen and Diamond, who invented the so-called "matching models" ...

I have taken the time to update my CV (see below).

October 8th, 2010.

The symposium of the appalled economists will take place this Saturday. I am really looking forward to it! I enclose the programme below.

I also publish the programme of the Post-Keynesian Seminars in Paris 13 for this academic year.
The update of my CV is still pending. Sorry!

For my Paris 1 second year students:
En attendant que l'on m'ouvre un accès au site officiel de l'EPI, je mets mes premiers cours en ligne ci-dessous.

September 15th, 2010.

It's time to go back to School and to update a little bit this website!

Since the last time, Intervention, The Journal of Post-Keynesian Economics and Metroeconomica have accepted to edit special issues based on the Post-Keynesian symposium organized in Paris 13 on last November. Being a co-editor is exciting, but it is also quite a lot of work!

I just added a link to the website of the "appalled economists" (les économistes atterrés) - I am one of them. The restrictive economic policies led all over Europe are absurd in the current context, and some significant changes are needed. I am currently translating the manifest in English, and I will publish it on this site soon. A symposium (in French) will be organized is Paris on October 9th, in order to debate about the various points made in the manifest.

I will publish the programme of this symposium, as well as the programme of the Post-Keynesian seminars in Paris 13 this year very soon. I shall also update my CV below asap.

See you soon

November 11th, 2009.

I have updated the programme of the symposium about "The Recents developements in post-Keynesian Modelling" - I hope this is the final version!

October 22th, 2009.

The symposium about "The Recents developements in post-Keynesian Modelling" will take place in November, at the University of Paris 13 - see the programme below.

You can also download a preview of the cover of my first book, "Hysteresis in Unemployment." It is about to be released! It should be available on Amazon, Blackwell, etc in November. ISBN: 978-3-639-17512-7.

Last, I have also uploaded an updated CV.
