Austrian Economics Research Seminar

Séminaire de recherche en économie autrichienne


This is an interdisciplinary seminar open for scholars and advanced students of economics, law, philosophy, and political science who share an interest in Austrian Economics. Its primary objective is to produce publishable research for international journals and to discuss important new trends in the social sciences. Presentations can be given in French or English. Foreign scholars are encouraged to submit paper proposals.

The seminar is co-directed by Professor Philippe Nemo and Professor Guido Hülsmann. It is part of the Centre for Research in Economic Philosophy (ESCP Europe).

Austrian Economics is a research paradigm in the tradition of realist philosophy and classical economics. It goes back to Carl Menger’s Principles of Economics (1871) and was subsequently developed by luminaries such as Eugen von Böhm-Bawerk, Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich von Hayek, and Murray Rothbard. The Austrian School differs from contemporary mainstream economics most notably in its epistemological and methodological foundations. It stresses the existence and importance of universal economic laws, and refutes the positivistic approach. Present-day Austrian economists have made contributions to epistemology, methodology, capital theory, entrepreneurship, money and banking, history of thought, bureaucracy, financial markets, value theory, industrial organization, business ethics, interventionism, economic policy, social economics, and business cycle theory. While most of these fields are also covered by other schools of economic thought, Austrians try to examine them from a broader, cross-disciplinary perspective, moving beyond the artificial borders imposed by positivistic modelling.
