Ahead of the next European Summit (13-14 Dec.), the Next Left Economic Circle will give the floor to Henri Sterdyniak the Co-President of the Appalled Economists, the so-called « Economiste attérés », this French association created last year in order to stimulate collective reflection and public expression of economists who are not resigned to the dominance of neo-liberal orthodoxy.

Henri Sterdyniak who is Head of the “Economics of Globalisation” department at the OFCE (Observatoire français des conjonctures économiques), will present other perspectives to the current situation, appalled to see the neoliberal paradigm is still the only one that is acknowledged as legitimate, despite its obvious failures, appalled that the same policies are on the agenda, and that their theoretical foundations are not reconsidered, appalled that the arguments which have been used during thirty years in order to guide European economic policy choices have been undermined by the facts.

Background:

The roundtables of the next Left Economic Circle bring together economists from different European institutions, civil society organisations and the business sector, who wish to evaluate the economic theoretical corpus behind economic policy proposals. The roundtables consist of regular public meetings, co-organised by the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) and the Global Progressive Forum (GPF) and are co-chaired by Liem Hoang-Ngoc (MEP, S&D Group at the European Parliament) and Stephany Griffith-Jones (Professor of Economics, Columbia University).

They take place in the European Parliament in Brussels (translation in French and English) at lunch time. For each roundtable, a renowned economist is invited as a guest speaker. Have a look of the former roundtables with Marc Lavoie, Malcolm Sawyer, Engelbert Stockhammer, Laurent Cordonnier, Eckard Hein

 The Appalled Economists:

Gathered researchers, academics and experts in economics, together with other citizens who are not economists, the “Appalled economists” is an association created 22 February 2011 in order to stimulate collective reflection and public expression of economists from who are not resigned to the dominance of neo-liberal orthodoxy.

Manifesto of the Appalled Economists entitled « Crisis and debt in europe: 10 pseudo “obvious facts”, 22 measures to drive the debate out of the dead end »

The world economic recovery, permitted by a massive injection of public spending into the economy (from the United States to China), is fragile but real. One continent lags behind, Europe. Finding again the path of growth is no longer its priority policy. Europe has embarked on another path : the fight against public deficits….
