Nobel Perspectives: on a post COVID-19 world
In this webinar with Professor Jean Tirole, we discuss the implications of COVID-19 on topics including technology, globalization and sustainability
As part of the UBS Nobel Perspectives program, our webinar series allows you to ask your questions directly to Nobel Laureates in Economic Sciences.
UBS Nobel Perspectives addresses the questions shaping our world, cutting through the noise, and holding the largest content library of Nobel Laureate interviews.
Jean Tirole won the Nobel prize in 2014 for his analysis of market common good and regulation. Jean Tirole’s research and regulation theories have changed how market regulation is applied to industries far and wide and broadened the scope of what competition can look like. The Nobel Laureate is also a best-selling author and distinguished professor. He joined Massimiliano Castelli, Global Head of Strategy, Global Sovereign Markets at UBS Asset Management, in a webinar on 30th September to discuss the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic on topics including technology, globalization and sustainability.
