European Society for the History of Economic Thought

ESHET

"Economic thinking proceeds both by accumulation and elimination. Elimination is not always for the best. The global financial crisis is a vivid example. Many discarded theories turned out to be relevant. More knowledge of history of thought would have prepared us better" (Olivier Blanchard).

 

ESHET 2020 Conference Postponed

The global impact of the Covid-19 outbreak leads us to reconsider the date of the 24th ESHET Conference, initially scheduled 28-30 May 2020 in Sofia. We are working on a solution to postpone the ESHET Conference (save the date 24-26 September in Sofia). Obviously, we will follow the guidance provided by government agencies and by UNWE in Sofia, and we will be back with details soon.
