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 role of economic models in the history of economic thought. The first part of his dissertation work dealt with macro-dynamic models from the 1930s and how they represented the (in)stability of the world during this period. In addition to the book, this project led to several publications in the Journal of the History of Economic Thought, the European Journal of the History of Economic Thought and the Revue d’Économie Politique. The second part of his thesis, conducted as a fellow at the Center for the History of Political Economy at Duke University, is concerned with the shift of market studies toward linear programming and game theory during the 1940s-1950s. Other publications and pre-prints can be found on his official page and his blog.
