"Regulating the economy for the benefit society": the challenge of the ECODEC laboratory of excellence
The LabEx's lines of work are summarised by the expression of this laboratory of excellence: "economics and decision sciences: regulating the economy for the benefit of society". ECODEC's challenge is to allow theoretical and practical advances in the regulation of markets, whether in the labour market, the markets for goods and services, or financial markets, while providing private and public decision makers the latest methodological tools to evaluate their policies and actions.
