This paper analyzes the Econometric Society European Meetings (ESEMs) over the period 1931-39, highlighting the research programs produced by the meetings to show the influence that these meetings had on economics in that period and thereafter. The examination of the European Meetings in the 1930s highlights the range of topics discussed in these meetings, connections with ideas of the past economists such as Cournot, Pareto, and Walras among others, and the interest in relevant social and economic issues that characterized the decade. Also, the paper points to the emphasis placed on the quantitative approach to economic analysis taken by the European members of the Econometric Society, and their efforts to establish new lines of research accordingly.
