Professor Jean Tirole, Honorary Chairman of the Toulouse School of Economics (TSE), will give the 2021 IFS Annual Lecture on "The common good after Covid".

Jean Tirole is member-founder of the Toulouse School of Economics (TSE) and of the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse (IAST). He is also affiliated with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), where he holds a position of Visiting Professor, and the Institut de France. He has published over two hundred articles in international peer-reviewed journals, as well as twelve scientific books. Published in English in 2017, his latest book, entitled “Economics for the Common Good”, is accessible to a wide audience and available in a number of languages.

Professor Tirole was one of the two chairs of the recent Tirole-Blanchard commission, set up by French President Emmanuel Macron, which looked at the major economic challenges facing France and other similar economies. He recently presented his findings at an IFS event, which you can view here.

This event is currently scheduled to take place in person at a central London venue with a reduced capacity, but subject to restrictions around Covid-19 we may have to host it online instead.
