Aurélien Saïdi is assistant professor at Paris Nanterre University and associated professor at ESCP Europe, in the department of Information & Operations Management. Former student of the Ecole normale supérieure, an associate of Economics and Accounting and Financial Management, he defended his thesis at the European University Institute of Florence in the field of macroeconomics of self-fulfilling prophecies, after a multidisciplinary schooling combining economics and management, history and socio-anthropology. His research topics have for a long time focused on expectations modelling, complex dynamics and fundations of economic policy in sunspot models. They have recently refocused on the history of 20th century economic thought, with a particular focus on the notion of "school of thought", the use of which he criticizes, giving priority to the notion of "community".
