UR Laboratoire d’économie dionysien - LED (Research Unit: Saint-Denis Laboratory of Economics)

From 1 January 2007 until early 2012 the LED was made up of three teams: Economic Thought and Historical Economics, Power, Institutions, Territories, and Banking & Finance. For the five-year period of 2014-2018, as requested by all of the institution’s researchers in economics, LED added an International Political Economics team, which was part of the ERASME laboratory (not an economics laboratory), as well as management lecturers who were not yet affiliated with any laboratory.

  • Decision theory
