Event Details

The French economist Bruno Amable will be in Vancouver to offer a conference about his field of expertise : the “Political crisis and the changing model of French capitalism”.

In the 2010s, France was in a situation of systemic crisis, namely, the impossibility for political leadership to find a strategy of institutional change, or more generally a model of capitalism, that could gather sufficient social and political support. Prof. Amable examines the various attempts at reforming the French model since the 1980s, when the left tried briefly to orient the French political economy in a socialdemocratic/socialist direction before changing course and opting for a more orthodox macroeconomic and structural policy direction.

Bruno Amable has devoted himself to the study of neo-liberalism, particularly its relations with innovation, and the analysis of the various forms of capitalism in developed countries. Since 1991 he has been a research fellow with Centre pour la recherche économique et ses applications (CEPREMAP) in Paris.
