Venture Capital and the Financing of Tech Startups. 11. Bubble Bursting, or the End of the Installation Phase. 12. The Current Deployment Phase and Its Many Institutional Challenges. Course Description : According to Carlota Perez's Technological Revolutions and Financial Capital, the digital revolution is the ﬁfth technological revolution in 200 years. We're still early in the process of tackling the challenges that come with the current revolution. Yet as it is mainly a recurrence of what happened in the past with treadmills, railroads, steel and car manufacturing, it appears particularly useful to study history and devise where we are in the process, how current fears can be dealt with, and what institutions are still needed to make the digital economy more sustainable and inclusive. This course will be divided into three parts. The ﬁrst will be dedicated to the previous technological revolutions, from the 18th century to the development of the Ford Motor Company and its aftermath. The second part will go into more details of the history of the Fordist economy, in the 20th century, and its demise after the 70s oil shocks, the globalization of ﬁnance and the rise of the ﬁrst tech companies. Finally, the third part will be dedicated to understanding the digital economy, its origins in Silicon Valley, the challenges it currently poses on society and how we can sustain its development in the coming years.

Course Description : The aim of this course is to better understand the various channels through which environmental and sustainable development policies interact with social inequalities. A good understanding of these links is necessary to design fair ecological transition pathways in industrialized and developing countries. The course is structured in three parts. The ﬁrst tier (sessions 1 to 5) sets the theoretical and factual basis of the course. These sessions will deﬁne concepts, present key trends and familiarize students with the subject. The second tier (sessions 6 to 8) will look at case studies : focusing both on developed and developing count
