Dr Edouard Cottin-Euziol

Edouard Cottin-Euziol joined the IASS in September 2015 as a project scientist for the DOLFINS (Distributed Global Financial Systems for Society) project, which aims to develop scenarios for the future of the international monetary and financial systems and explore the consequences of banks being able to create credit and money in an international context. In 2013, Cottin-Euziol defended his PhD in economics at the University of Limoges, France, where he also taught macroeconomics and the history of economic analysis for six years. His thesis focused on the relationship between the banking origin of money and the dynamics of economies. Grounded in the study of numerous economists and on Keynesian models of monetary macroeconomics, it explored the consequences of banks being able to create money by issuing credit.
