1 1st International Congress Jean-Baptiste Say SAYS Conference 2014 RNI Summer School 2014 August 27 th - 30 th, 2014 Boulogne-sur-Mer/Auchy-lès-Hesdin Nord/Pas-de-Calais France Economic thought of the industrial revolutions: innovation, entrepreneurship and business cycles The financial and monetary crises that have repeatedly taken place since the early 1990s, and in particular the crisis in the euro zone, have brought to front the issues of industrialisation, of 1

2 the place of goods and services industry within economies as well as of innovation and economic and social progress. This first International Congress Jean-Baptiste Say will partly take place in the village of Auchy-les-Hedin, near the town of Arras, in the old abbey where Jean-Baptiste Say built one of the first large cotton mills. The cotton mill employed up to 450 workers and lasted more than 200 years before its closure in The place and the founder of the company are emblematic. Indeed, Jean-Baptiste Say is one of the founders of the classical economics as well as an industrialist, a politically committed citizen, and an innovator of his enterprise by introducing a hydraulic motor. The company was set up in the middle of a rural area without any manufacturing or craft activity at that period. This conference aims to update the approaches of the history of economic thought in the fields of industrial revolutions and the sociotechnical paradigms, as well as to observe how national traditions, specific contexts, and epochs have marked the development of theory in these fields To begin with the discussion of the theories of the 18 th and 19 th centuries and their extensions to the contemporary theories of sustainable development. We will pay particular attention to study and to revisit the issue of entrepreneurship, and not only the figure of the entrepreneur, to identify if possible a typology in terms of both time and space. We will also consider the existing nexus between innovation and industrialisation in the economic thinking. Special attention may also be paid to the question of economic rhythms and of their articulation with internal and external elements in the long term. The notion of industrial decline will be examined over the long term so as to clarify, to validate or invalidate, the content of the conceptualisation in this field. How did the economists build, through their writings, for the contemporaries, the meaning of what we call succinctly Industrial Revolution, or major economic change, that can be broken down into the 1st, 2nd, 3rd Industrial Revolution. What role and place for technical progress yesterday and today? How did the economists experience the socio-economic change? Did they (or not) detect it? Did they give a coherent sense of the changes that could be chronologically and geographically far apart? What was their vision of the transformations that industrialisation provoked? Was the Industrial Revolution really revolutionary in their vision? What role should be given to services and innovation in the major industrial changes? Can we give a broad and open definition of innovation? This questioning can also raise new questions: what is the place of services and their innovation in long waves? May the current trend towards deindustrialisation of developed economies be interpreted as a process of destruction of the old industrial structures and creation of services firms? Then, is the Schumpeterian entrepreneurship also active in services? The first International Congress Jean-Baptiste Say will consist of two parts: a conference where the theories of Jean-Baptiste Say will be at the heart of scientific presentations and discussions will host researchers interested in the theories of innovation and long waves; a summer school will approach specifically doctoral students and young researchers whose works combine theory and economic facts about entrepreneurship, innovation, growth and development of new economic and social practices (information and knowledge economy/society, social economy, etc.). Historical and international comparisons are welcome. Since the Congress is interdisciplinary, the participants can be researchers in economics, management, history and sociology. 2

3 List of the key topics of the First Jean-Baptiste Say International Congress: 1) Theories and multiple realities of entrepreneurship: Jean-Baptiste Say, forerunner of the triumph of entrepreneur 2) Theories of production and of the nature- production relations, from Jean-Baptiste Say to sustainable development 3) The economic thinking of technical progress: from Classics to the systemic nature of innovation 4) Innovation and economic cycles: industrial revolution by jumps or by a continuous process 5) Histories of entrepreneurs and inventions or the application of science to economy: innovation 6) Socio-technical paradigms throughout the industrial revolutions: from the big industry to the "new economy": economy of services, of information and knowledge economy, of environment... 7) Industrial Revolution, changes at work and new forms of social organisation of production: from the labour society to the entrepreneurial society, what kind of solidarity, what sort of creativity? 8) Industrial Revolutions and location of innovative activities: effects of proximity, agglomeration, scale, variety, diffusion, appropriation and accumulation 9) Drivers of (re)industrialisation and socio-economic transition: new activities, social change, active policies (coercive or support)? Participants The first International Congress Jean-Baptiste Say is open to researchers and gives a substantial place to the works of doctoral students. The Congress will feature plenary sessions with invited speakers, special sessions around key themes, poster sessions specifically dedicated to early-stage doctoral students. A round table will conclude the three days. These four days will be accompanied with cultural events to extend the discussions in a relaxed atmosphere. The Saturday August 30 th will be exclusively dedicated to cultural activities.
