Chair

Professor Wouter den Haan

While being a university professor, Jean-Yves Duclos had the opportunity to comment on governmental decisions. Now that he is the one making the decisions and as an economist, he sees the process in a much different perspective. 

Elected to the Canadian Parliament in October 2015, Jean-Yves Duclos (@jyduclos) currently serves as Canadian Minister of Families, Children and Social Development. Prior to politics, Minister Duclos was the head of the Department of Economics at Université Laval. He earned his master’s and doctoral degrees in Economics at LSE.

Wouter den Haan is Co-director for the Centre for Macroeconomics and Professor of Economics at LSE.

The Department of Economics at LSE (@LSEEcon) is one of the largest economics departments in the world. Its size ensures that all areas of economics are strongly represented in both research and teaching.

The Centre For Macroeconomics (@CFMUK) brings together world-class experts to carry out pioneering research on the global economic crisis and to help design policies that alleviate it.
