Global: Tirole delivers Nobel Prize lecture

 |  December 10, 2014

Jean Tirole, who earlier this year was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences for his work in antitrust and economics, delivered his Prize Lecture in Sweden this week.

Tirole delivered the presentation surrounding the topic of dominance companies and how they should be regulated – an area for which the economist was awarded the Nobel Prize. The lecture was held at Stockholm University’s Aula Magna last Monday.

Tirole is known for his analysis in the regulation of natural monopolies. During his presentation the economist described the event as “an amazing experience,” one filled with memories and emotion. His lecture was titled “Market Failures and Public Policy.” A video stream of the event can be viewed through the link below.

CPI will be featuring some of Tirole’s work in this upcoming Autumn/Winter 2014 Journal.
