New book release
Princeton University Press has just published
Finding Equilibrium: Arrow, Debreu, McKenzie
and the Problem of Scientific Credit by our
colleague Till Düppe (in collaboration with E.
Roy Weintraub of Duke University). The authors
examine the context of the development (by
Kenneth Arrow and Gérard Debreu and by
Lionel McKenzie separately) of the proof of the
theorem of the existence of general equilibrium
in a competitive market economy, and also the
role of the theorem in the transformation of
economics into a more highly formalised subject.
Congratulations to both authors!

New article
published by Julien
Martin
Julien Martin's article (with Isabelle Méjean) has
just been published in Journal of International
Economics. In "Low-wage country competition
and the quality content of high-wage country
exports", the authors show that increasing
competition from low-wage countries has led
developed countries to specialize in the
production of high-end goods.
Congratulations!

15th World Congress of Social Economics
"Doing Social Economics"
Brock University, June 22 - 24, 2015
Social economics is the study of the ethical and social causes and
consequences of economic behavior, institutions, organizations, theory,
and policy. Social economists engage in many types of research, from
explorations of the history and philosophy of economics to quantitative
and qualitative examinations of contemporary economic life; and from
historical studies of economic activity and institutions to
recommendations for policy agendas. The practice and meaning of social
economics is continuously defined and redefined by these diverse
research agendas. The 15th World Congress in Social Economics will
afford us the opportunity to take stock of who we are as social
economists and how our work advances our values and principles.
We welcome proposals for individual papers and complete sessionsconceptual, applied, and empirical-related to the theme of the conference
as well as all areas of social economics.
The deadline for submission is March 28, 2015. You will be notified by
April 15, 2015.
16
Abstract Submissions
To submit a proposal, please visit the Association for Social Economics
web site at http://www.socialeconomics.org/ and upload an abstract of
approximately 400 words. The submission site will become available in
November 2014. Please include the title of the session or paper, the
authors' names and institutional affiliations, and contact information in
the form of an email address for the corresponding author. At least
one author of each paper presented at the World Congress must be a
member of the Association for Social Economics. To join, please visit
this link http://www.socialeconomics.org/.

CRESSE FELLOWSHIPS
Fellowships Available For Untenured Faculty, Doctoral Students
and Post-Docs to Attend Leading Competition Policy Summer
School in Crete, Greece, June-July 2015
The Centre for Interuniversity Research and Analysis of Organizations
(CIRANO) in Montreal, the Rotman Institute for International Business,
in the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto and
the Phelps Centre for the Study of Government and Business in the
Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia (“the
Centres”) are pleased to announce a partnership with the European
Summer School and Conference in Competition and Regulation
(CRESSE: www.cresse.info/ ). The goal is to encourage and facilitate
greater participation by young Canadian economists in this world-class
conference and summer school. In its tenth year in 2015, CRESSE will
feature presentations and teaching by some of the leading competition
policy experts in the world, including 2014 Nobel Laureate Jean Tirole
who will be a Keynote Conference Speaker. More about this year’s
summer school and conference can be found at:
www.cresse.info/default.aspx?articleID=3398 . The summer school is
ideal for those interested in competition economics but who, while
trained in microeconomic theory and industrial organization, may have
had limited opportunity for focused study in the field.
The Centres will jointly fund six fellowships for economists to attend the
full 2015 summer school (all nine modules) and conference which will
run from June 27 to July 10, 2015 and will be held in Rethymnon, Crete,
Greece. These fellowships will cover all registration and tuition fees and
18
will include up to C$3,000 additional funding to cover air and hotel
costs.
Those eligible for consideration for these fellowships will include
economists who are: Canadian Ph.D. students and post-doctoral
scholars, and other doctoral and post-doctoral scholars studying or
working in Canadian universities; untenured Canadian faculty members
and other untenured faculty working at Canadian universities; and
employees of the Competition Bureau of Canada.
To apply for a fellowship, or for further information, contact:
Professor Thomas Ross, Director
Phelps Centre for the Study of Government and Business
Sauder School of Business, University of British Columbia
Vancouver, BC, CANADA, V6T 1Z2
Tel: (604) 822-8478 E-mail: tom.ross@sauder.ubc.ca
Applicants should provide a letter or email expressing their desire to
apply for a fellowship as well as the following: (i) for untenured faculty,
post-doctoral fellows and employees of the Canadian Competition
Bureau – a CV only; and (ii) for doctoral students (who may not
necessarily be at the thesis stage) – a CV, list of graduate economics
courses (taken and in process), and names and contact information of two
references (but not letters). Applications are welcome now and will be
received until all fellowships have been awarded. Interested applicants
are encouraged to apply – or at least to express interest – as soon as
possible. To facilitate travel planning, some fellowships may be awarded
as early as December 2014 and we expect all fellowships to be awarded
by April 1, 2015.
