A look back at the CREST-INSEE workshop

On Wednesday 29th November, CREST welcomed for the first time the annual CREST-INSEE Workshop. The first workshop was held at INSEE, and the aim is now to make it an annual event held every two years at each institution.

Presentations were held by scientific personalities from CREST and D2E:
• Estimating Cross-Border Tobacco Purchases in France, Mélina Hillion (D2E)
• Firm Moral Hazard in Short-Time Work, Alice Lapeyre (CREST)
• Energy Cost Pass-Through: Evidence from French Manufacturers, Raphaël Lafrogne Joussier (D2E) (joint work with Julien Martin and Isabelle Méjean)
• Welfare Effects of Increasing Transfers to Young Adults: Theory and Evidence, Marion Brouard (CREST)
• Flood Risk and Residential Mobility in France, Julie Sixou (D2E) (joint with Christine Le Thi and Katrin Millock)
• Too Constrained to Grow. Analysis of Firms’ Response to the Alleviation of Skill Shortages, Sara Signorelli (CREST) (joint work with F. Fontaine)

The purpose of this workshop is to encourage and develop exchanges and research projects between CREST and the Economic Studies Department of INSEE. In front of a large audience, high-quality presentations on economic topics of wide interest (trade, environment, public economics, …) provided an opportunity to exchange views and ideas. A real success!
