Michaël Assous is Full Professor of Economics at the Université Lumière Lyon 2, France. Assous coordinates the research branch focusing on the history of economics at Triangle since 2017, a center whose mission is to promote and support research in, and the teaching of, the history of economics in France. His principal research interests are in the history of macroeconomics. His previous work, much of which focused on the Polish economist Michal Kalecki, dealt with the analytical components of economics. His fellowship year at the HOPE Center in 2012-2013 afforded him a new experience regarding his work on the history of economics. Since then, taking advantage of the abundant holdings in the Economists’ Papers Project, Assous has been using archival material in his research projects, which deals with instability and the recent history of macroeconomics, paying attention to the papers of Robert Solow, Franco Modigliani, Oskar Lange, and Paul Samuelson. In 2012, he was awarded the ESHET (European Society of the History of Economic Thought) young researcher award. More informations can be found on his official page.
Vincent Carret is a PhD student at the Université Lumière Lyon 2, working on the history of models and the history of economic thought. His thesis is centered on the different conceptualization of stability in economic models from the 1930s to the 1950s. This research is divided in two general parts: the first is focused on econometricians during the interwar period, and particularly on dynamic economic models. The second is focused on the problem of stability in game theory and its impact on how markets were perceived, as well as on models used to resolve this problem, such as Orcutt’s microsimulation approach. During his graduate studies, he participated in a workshop on modern macroeconomics that led to a publication in the European Journal of the History of Economic Thought (in collaboration with Michaël Assous). As a PhD student, he also participated in a special issue of the Revue d’Économie Politique (forthcoming) centered around expectations. Other publications and pre-prints can be found on his official page and his blog.
