On Tuesday 18 June 2024 at 6 pm, Governor François Villeroy de Galhau, Deputy Governor Agnès Bénassy-Quéré and Professor Jean Tirole, honorary president of the Toulouse School of Economics will reveal the names of the six winners of the Monetary Economics and Finance Prizes for the years 2022 and 2024.

You are invited to take part in this public ceremony. The prizes reward professors who have conducted outstanding research that has contributed to major improvements in the design and implementation of central bank policies. 

The ceremony will include two panel discussions. They will provide the opportunity to discuss how the transmission of monetary policy is impacted by perceptions, and inequalities. It will also address how the real estate cycle must be taken into account in macro-prudential policy, and the role of international capital flows and international currencies in the functioning of the international financial system.

Medals

The prizes for research in monetary and financial economics have been awarded since 2012. The awardees are chosen by a jury that includes three representatives from the Banque de France, three representatives from the Toulouse school of economics and three professors in economics or finance: Veronica Guerrieri of the University of Chicago, Christine Parlor of the University of Berkeley and Ivan Werning of MIT. The objective of these prizes is to support research that is topical for central banks. Awarded every two years, they distinguish two junior university researchers (i.e. researchers who have defended their doctoral thesis for less than 20 years) and a senior university researcher.  

The ceremony will be preceded during the day by an academic conference, which is also open to the public upon registration: Prizes in Monetary Economics and Finance Academic Workshop | Banque de France (banque-france.fr)

The working languages of the ceremony will be English and French (with live translatation).
