Congratulations to Dr Xavier Jaravel who has been awarded the "Prix du meilleur jeune économiste de France", an annual award given by Le Monde and the Cercle des économistes to a French economist under the age of 40.

Created in 2000, the Prize for the Best Young Economist highlights the capacity of the laureates to be attentive to today's economic reality and to constantly seek solutions to bring to the most urgent problems.

Xavier Jaravel is associate professor of economics at the London School of Economics and member of the Public Economics Programme at STICERD. His work focuses in particular on the links between the dynamics of innovation and inequalities.

Professor Tim Besley, Director of STICERD, said: "It is a wonderful and well-deserved acknowledgement of his many outstanding academic contributions. He follows in the footsteps of Camille Landais, STICER's previous recipient of the award. Together with other members of the Public Economics Program, they are making an enormous contribution to STICERD."
