NEW AT ECARES: A web-based course on the economics of regulation of public services delivered at an introductory level aimed at students in economics, public policy but also at practioners who want to get some up-to-date conceptual basis on the issues they have to work on. The viewers will be reminded of when, why and how regulation matters in theory but they will also be exposed to the core tools used in the best practice of regulation…which is not really common in academic courses on the economics of regulation. The tone is informal but analytically solid. Each lecture includes some basic optional math adds-on and skype interviews of regulation specialists. Hope you’ll join us.
André Sapir is appointed as chairman of the High Level Group on the Future of the Belgian Financial Sector by the Belgian Finance Minister Johan Van Overtveldt and Paola Conconi will become director of the CEPR network "GVCs, Trade and Development.
