2014 HOPE Conference: "Market Failure in Context"

The 2014 HOPE conference, "Market Failure in Context," will take place April 18-19 at Duke University.

Organized by Steven G. Medema (University of Colorado Denver) and Alain Marciano (Université de Montpellier 1), the conference will bring together a small group of scholars with an interest in the general theme of how economists treated the analyses of market failure and how this work was stimulated by the larger background contexts—social, political, ideological, etc.—in which they were working.

The conference proceedings will appear as a special issue of HOPE in 2015.

The conference is funded by Duke University Press and is open to invited participants only.

The 2013 HOPE conference examined MIT and the transformation of American economics. The conference volume will appear as a special issue of HOPE in 2014.
