when we are commemorating a decade since the passing of Laffont who Tirole noted ‘would have deserved to be with me’ in receiving the prize Related News Jean Tirole’s Nobel prize has generated much excitement for those of us working alongside him at the Toulouse School of Economics (TSE) Tirole’s prize comes as recognition for over 30 years of work on a wide range of topics from banking and finance to the regulation of network businesses On a sombre note it also comes at a time when we at the TSE are commemorating a decade since the passing of Tirole’s collaborator Jean-Jacques Laffont who Tirole noted “would have deserved to be with me” in receiving the prize The Nobel committee’s award specifically focuses on Tirole’s “analysis of market power and regulation” There are two central questions First how will firms behave when there are only a few of them in the market What prices will they set what range of goods will they offer and what will be the quality level of these goods Second if competition among firms is insufficient to constrain prices what policies should regulators use for the benefit of consumers and society at large To answer these questions Tirole has championed the approach offered by information economics which centres on the role of information that individuals and firms hold privately A classic example is the regulation of a firm’s pricing say a privately owned network that supplies electricity to homes and businesses Such distribution networks are examples of “natural monopolies”: firms that face no competitors because replication of their infrastructure is infeasible or too costly Other examples include railroads ports and phone lines The question for a regulator of a natural monopoly is how to set the firm’s prices given that it has better information about its technology One possibility is to simply let the firm recover all of its costs But this gives the firm’s managers little reason to reduce expenditures Indeed the management might engage in wasteful spending that benefits only themselves knowing that the firm will be reimbursed Alternatively the regulator could fix a price that does not depend on the firm’s cost The firm then keeps any reduction in expenditures for itself; that is there are strong incentives to reduce spending Unfortunately this also means that very efficient firms make large profits to the detriment of consumers The contribution of Tirole together with Laffont was to derive the optimal incentive scheme They showed that the optimal scheme lies between the two extremes Optimal regulation balances incentives for efficiency against reductions in firm profits Laffont and Tirole also studied dynamic models of regulation noting that regulators do not set firm incentives once and for all but typically revise them over time They analysed the problem of a regulator that cannot commit to its future policies showing how a firm will be led to reveal its true costs only gradually Tirole has considered a host of other issues specific to different markets Together with Jean-Charles Rochet he has been a leader in the study of platforms operating in “two-sided markets” Here a platform is a firm that provides services to users on each side Credit cards provide services not only to cardholders but also to merchants who accept these cards Newspapers not only attract readers but also sell advertising space to companies that want to reach these readers Tirole studied pricing and competition in these markets influencing thinking on the regulation of credit-card interchange fees (the fees paid by a merchant’s bank to a customer’s bank) Another example is his study of “patent pools” (in collaboration with Josh Lerner) where companies come together to cross-license patents needed for a given technology Such arrangements seem increasingly important in high-tech industries such as software development and biotechnology However because companies set prices for the pooled patents cooperatively it is natural to worry that the practice could hurt consumers Lerner and Tirole argued that it is difficult to assess whether this is the case and that it depends on the market in question But they were still able to provide robust policy advice Tirole has also studied regulatory issues in banking and finance of special interest in view of the recent financial crisis He studied the implications of government bailouts in banking and considered how a government can restore a frozen asset market — the dilemma that was faced in the US market for mortgage-backed securities As these examples attest Tirole’s prize was not for a single contribution but for a wide-ranging body of work He has been successful in identifying topics of importance for practitioners such as regulatory policymakers The running theme is careful modelling of the incentives faced by individual actors He has devised models that are detailed enough to capture the relevant complexities but simple enough to be accessible to a wide readership of economists The writer is a junior chair (assistant professor) at the Toulouse School of Economics [email protected] For all the latest Opinion

little over 3500 collected their delegate cards Most screenings saw less than 50 per cent attendance Some cited the increase in the registration fee from Rs 300 to Rs 1000 for the decrease in footfall In 2014 13000 delegates had registered for IFFI IFFI had at its disposal 2538 seats across seven screening venues — each of them on an average projected seven shows per day (altogether 406 shows as
