French economist Jean Tirole, Chairman of TSE, has just won the 2014 Nobel Prize in Economics for his work on market regulation theory.
The AXA Research Fund has endowed TSE with € 3,000,000 in 2008, to fund the AXA Chair on Economics and Finance.
Tirole and his team have shaped the debate in competition policy, financial regulation and environmental policies, with impressive record of policy-relevant work in collaboration with regulators, corporations and public institutions. Tirole has been influential in the theoretical and practical application of game theory and information theory to industrial organization and regulation. His research interests also include finance, macroeconomics, international finance and economics and psychology.
AXA is proud to support independent academic research on risks with top-tier institutions and researchers, contributing to understand them today to better protect tomorrow.
