Economics serving society

Research Activities

Breakfast Reading Group

As part of the collaborative project "Society and Environment", PSE organizes a breakfast reading group on "economics and biodiversity". There is a burgeoning literature that leverages tools developed in economics and knowledge coming from biology in the aim of answering questions related to human well-being. This bi-monthly reading group relies on the presentation and discussion of recent work at the frontier between economics and biology. It is open to any PSE member interested by the topic as well as to outsiders, including researchers in natural science.

In practice, one or two persons present the general idea of one or two papers, the main results. They also spur discussions around data used, estimation strategies and modelling tools, very much in a "tricks and tools spirit".
