Public Policies over the life cycle

The Inaugural Lecture of Professor Marco Manacorda, Professor of Economics and Professor Barbara Petrongolo, Professor of Economics

Key to the role of governments is the provision of assistance, education, welfare and protection against major risks in life such as unemployment and sickness. Marco Manacorda and Barbara Petrongolo’s research has explored the design and impact of public policies through the lens of economics from birth to adulthood, in developed and developing countries. Key to the optimal design of public policies is the understanding of the interplay between their normative objectives and agents’ behaviour. This talk explores the intended and unintended consequences of public policies interventions in several areas and at different stages of the life cycle, including investment in health, schooling and labour market participation.

The lecture will be followed by a networking drinks reception.
