Jean Tirole Awarded the Nobel Prize In Economics For His Work On Industrial Organisation

On October 13th Jean Tirole was awarded the Nobel prize in economics for his work on „industrial organisation“. Mr Tirole began publishing in the 1980s, when it quickly became clear that new, liberalised industries might not form perfectly competitive markets. He developed a novel way of thinking about the difficulties regulators face managing such markets. – Source: The Economist

Not that big but great! Brief and accurately to the point. Uncommon combinations of objects, e.g. porcelaine, a Gutenberg bible, and Bauhaus objects under the Audi claim ‚Vorsprung durch Technik“ (translated politely as ‚progress through technology‘) – Tyradellis would approve and so do I; it’s worth checking out. Only the shop at the end pays a bit too much tribute to allegedly German icons, but of course it might be that I just don’t really understand British humour.
