Esther Duflo: « Je ne vois rien de rationnel dans ce projet de réforme des retraites »

Ahead of the announcement of the 2023 winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics, the 2019 winner of the prize, and co-founder of the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab, Esther Duflo, comments on the recently promulgated pension reforms in France. In an article in La Tribune, Esther considers the pension reform 'regressive' and overly complicated, bearing adverse impact on the country's poorest pensioners. She also dissects the impact of hyperinflation on the poor and pleads for the creation of a special fund for low-income countries financed by an increase in the minimum global tax on companies currently set at 15%.
