Améliorer la formation des étudiants en sciences économiques
In France today we are faced with three problems in training young economists. Firstly we have a system in which every university is supposed to offer equivalent degrees and this means that more than half of the students disappear without getting a degree. We cannot offer the sort of courses which would be appropriate for different types of students. Secondly, the quality of teaching is not satisfactory and this can be seen by examining the text books which are not aimed at communicating a desire to learn about economic phenomena. Lastly, the contents of the courses do not reflect such modern concerns as the problems of contagion, psychological elements, out of equilibrium behaviour. All of these are important since students do not wish to hear about theories which seem to have little to do with the economic facts that they observe.
