Economic Rockstar

Sep 8, 2018

François Allisson is a scholar in history of economic thought and a senior lecturer at the Centre Walras-Pareto at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland.

His research interests encompass the whole history of Russian economic thought, with a special emphasis on the theories of value and prices at the end of the imperial period and the beginning of the Soviet era ( which covers the years from the 1870s to the 1920s).

In this episode we chat about pricing using the theory labour of value and on marginal utility, as well as the Swiss-based Russian economist Nikolay Sieber.
