Graduation

Alexandre Fischman

Welcome to my advanced interactive curriculum vitae.

This project was born with the will to fight information asymmetry and to allow you to have a better insight on my studies. As you will see I am passionate about economics and political sciences, and here you will find my works as a student in different topics. I hope that those essays may be useful to you and I am very glad to share them. Here is a section devoted to the main course I followed during my studies, it provides some useful website links and books references. I will keep this website up to date and upload my future  papers with the same free access mentality. Feel free to send me an email if needed, I wish you a lot of profitable food for thought.

    This Magistère allows students to receive a formation comparable to Graduate Schools’ courses in the American Ivy League. It has been one of the first institution to implement a collaboration between French Universities and Grandes Ecoles, since it has been cohabilitated by the Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS) and the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (EHESS). Thus it escape a too strong specialisation (an often trait of French universities) and avoid the dichotomy between economics and quantitative methods. The teaching aim to train, in three years, operational economist at an international level. The main formation ensure a perfect proficiency in economic analyses, and more specifically in quantitative techniques, formalisation and modelling. The training through research is an essential aspect of the pedagogic project. At the end students appear as economic engineers endow with a real economic expertise.

    Research Assistant at the Paris School of Economics
    image

    I have always been passionate by macroeconomics. However, I also wanted to understand the microeconomics foundation of the macroeconomics. Therefore in my last year of bachelor I wrote a dissertation whose title was ‘rationality and chess players’. I made this work during a three month internship as a research assistant under the supervision of G. Hollard and J. de Sousa. The idea was to study how well the game theory could predict the actual behavior of agents of the economy. We ran experimentation in the Paris’ chess tournament in July 2010. Our goal consisted in using chess player ranking, known as ELO ranking, to match it with the cognitive hierarchy theory.

    The data collected during the experimental economic process have been used in the publication: J. Sousa, G. Hollard, A. Terracol (2012), “Do non-strategic players really exist? Evidence from experimental games involving step reasoning”, Mimeo.
