What policies will restore the health of the French state’s finances?

Written on 06 June 2013.


After two consecutive years in London, the seventh edition of EDHEC Research Day will take place in Paris, at the Maison de la Chimie, on 21 June 2013. This year, the conference will revolve around discussion of remedies for the French state’s ailing financial health.

Since 2001, EDHEC Business Schools has vigorously promoted research, a stance embodied by the motto ‘EDHEC for Business’. The theme of EDHEC Research Day, then, illustrates EDHEC Business School’s involvement in current debates and its contributions to the work being done to improve the French state’s financial health.

The first part of the morning will involve four plenary sessions during which EDHEC faculty members will discuss the results of their latest research:

·        Can public spending on higher education be increased all while moving closer to tax equity?

·        Conserving careers and employment: What reforms to social security in France?

·        Do government-run banks accomplish their missions? Conflicts of interest and economic efficiency. 

·        The shortcomings of financial regulation and of belief in ‘redeeming’ the real economy. 

The second part of the morning will be devoted to a roundtable featuring Valérie Rabault and Gilles Carrez, vice-president and president respectively of the finance committee of the French National Assembly, Amélie Verdier, the cabinet director of the junior minister for the budget, Julien Guez, member of the board and chief economist of MEDEF, the French boss’s federation, and Stéphane Gregoir, professor of economics and associate dean for faculty and research at EDHEC Business School. The theme to be discussed by the members of the roundtable is made clear by the title of the event: French public finances: Could they be set right by 2017?
