Go-go managers contre futurs prix Nobel d'économie : genèse de l'investisseur professionnel moderne 1962-1973

Abstract : The “revolution of investing”, welcomed by US financial chroniclers and columnists in the 1970s is one of the facets of the conversion of finance to the new monetarist order which replaced the post war Keynesianism. Drawing on the literature about the new practices of financiers in the 1960s, this article analyses how a fraction of them, the go-go managers, shaped a new figure of the investor which simultaneously addressed the requirements of their clients and the challenge of their academic competitors. Marked by the “cult of personality”, this figure has persisted in the financial world despite the rationalizing of the investment decision making process, prescribed by the new financial theory and implemented by financial firms. This figure embodies the ambivalence of the contemporary financial investor, between individualism and standardization.
