Robert Boyer Is Scholar in Residence 2014/2015

From February 2015, Robert Boyer, Associate Professor at the Institute of the Americas in Vanves, France, will be Scholar in Residence at the MPIfG. During his stay in Cologne he will hold three lectures on the topic of "Economic Theory Facing Major Changes and Systemic Crises: An Analytical and Social History of Macroeconomics." He challenges the view held by many theorists and politicians that the current eurozone crisis is something exceptional and therefore of little consequence to economic theory and he will discuss possible reasons why economists were unable to anticipate the crisis in time. Each year the MPIfG invites a leading scholar from the political, economic or social sciences to spend six months at the Institute. Scholars in residence pursue a particular research project that relates to research conducted at the MPIfG. more
