  • Les salaires français sont-ils trop rigides ?

    1 March
    Non. C'est l'augmentation du nombre de cadres et la baisse de celui des ouvriers qui expliquent la hausse du salaire moyen en France. En dehors de cet effet, les salaires réels baissent en réalité depuis la crise.

  • The ‘pub economics’ of structural reforms

    30 March
    Professor Nicholas Barr of LSE used to kick off his public economics lectures by illustrating cases of what he facetiously named ‘pub economics’, defined as something that everyone knows to be true, but is not. In his lectures, examples of these misconceptions were the notion that free university (...)

    23 March
    What’s at stake: The US dollar has gone through a very rapid appreciation over the past 6 months.
