Finance reconsidered

Impact of Finance Research

A message from new center director Dr. Christophe Faugère:

The SEEFAR (Shift for Ecology, Economics, Finance and Accounting Research) center is a restart of the Finance Reconsidered center that was managed under the audacious leadership of Bernard Paranque over the past decade. The brand Finance Reconsidered is an important distinctive mark for Kedge Business School, and will be preserved in this new incarnation of the center. In adopting the word “reconsidered” in its name, the center positioned itself as a critical reaction to mainstream economics and finance. This choice was appropriate in light of the failure of the leading theories during the most intense financial crisis the world has known, and which occurred in 2008. Now, it has been 10 years since that last great crisis, and the time has come to shift gear and work to build the next generation of theories, empirical models and tools in our fields. Therefore, while a critical perspective remains an important part of the research agenda, the center must become a force of proposition for new solutions and empirical insights, in all arenas: academic, political, managerial, economic and environmental. Our members, while coming from different fields, belief systems and approaches, have two things in common: 1) they are truly committed to see this change happening and 2) they share a high level of enthusiasm about it. In a sense, the center and its members will work on the fringe of a paradigm shift that puts front and center the idea that we all live in an interconnected environment. All economic, financial, accounting and managerial decisions must focus on raising the wellbeing of humans, respect ecological balance, and hence be sustainable.
