(11 Oct.) Evaluating the 2019 Budget

Evaluating the 2019 Budget

11 October 2018, 12h30 – 15h

PSE-Ecole d’économie de Paris – Campus Jourdan, 48 boulevard Jourdan – 75014 Paris

The government’s 2019 Budget bill – and the Social Security Financing bill – has just been presented to parliament. Parliamentary discussion of the budget is important to every democracy and yet in France, it is not subject to independent analysis.

This year, the National Assembly has launched a process of soliciting scientific assessments of the government’s budgetary measures. Responding to this initiative, Cepremap and IPP will present research that can inform this democratic debate, bringing together macroeconomic analyses of the budget, and assessments of the impact of budget policies on households and on business. A round-table will follow the presentations, composed of representatives of the main groups in parliament. Please note that this conference is held entirely in French

The Institut des politiques publiques (IPP) was created by the scientific partnership of the Paris School of Economics (PSE) and the Centre de recherche en économie et statistique (CREST). IPP’s mission is to promote the analysis and quantitative evaluation of public policy using the most up-to-date methods in economics research.

Cepremap, the Centre pour la recherche économique et ses applications, functions under the auspices of the Minister for Research. It is the interface between the academic world and government departments and agencies related to the economy. It is both an agency for presenting economics research to decision-makers and a funding agent for projects deemed to be priorities in public decision-making.
