Paris, 13 October 2014

ARCEP welcomes the awarding of the Nobel Prize in economics to Jean Tirole, Scientific Director at Institut d'Économie Industrielle, at the Toulouse School of Economics, which was founded by Jean-Jacques Laffont.

Jean Tirole was awarded the prize “for his analysis of market power and regulation”.

ARCEP has had an ongoing relationship with Jean Tirole since its inception: among other things, he has written two articles for the Cahiers de l’ARCEP, including one on “Regulation or the modern public economy”.

This Nobel Prize illustrates the vitality of French economic thinking, and its contemporary relevance.
