Professor Elisabeth Krecké
A citizen of Luxembourg, Elisabeth Krecké has spent much of her professional life in France.
She has been a professor of economics at the University of Aix Marseille (1994-2004 and 2007-2014) and the University of Science and Technology of Lille (2004-2007).
Her academic research focuses mainly on the methods of the economics of law, an interdisciplinary field devoted to the study of legal and regulatory decision-making in a variety of domains, as well as the efficiency (or impact assessment) of laws, government policies and institutional frameworks. In 2014, she took a long-term leave of absence to join her home country’s Ministry of Finance as policy advisor (2015-2016).
Currently, she is a Luxembourg-based independent economist, working on various research projects at the intersection between regulatory economics, international macroeconomics and finance, with special emphasis on financial and economic crises, banking regulation and supervision, monetary policy, sovereign debt and macro-financial doom-loops, notably in the context of the eurozone.
