17th SCEME Seminar in Economic Methodology "Coding Economics? Professional Conduct and Scholarly Values after the Crisis "
In the wake of the financial crisis and the ensuing public debate on the potential entanglement of the economics profession in the origins of this crisis, learned societies of the discipline have been called upon to incorporate professional codes of conduct in their regulations. In response, the American Economic Association, as the world's largest learned society in economics, approved a conflict of interest policy in 2012. Discussions on the merit, extent and reach of such and similar policies and codes continue both within and without the profession. The chief aim of the seminar is to bring together prominent scholars and stakeholders to appraise the current state of those discussions in order to help inform the wider public and policy debates.
