Philippe Aghion Economist
Over his career, Dr. Aghion’s research interests have dealt with a variety of economic topics, including contract theory. With Peter Howitt, he pioneered the so-called Schumpeterian Growth paradigm which was subsequently used to analyze the design of growth policies and the role of the state in the growth process. His recent efforts focus on the topics of innovation, governance, and economic growth.
