Bernard Salanié

Professor of Economics


Professor Salanié is Professor of Economics. His research agenda in microeconomic theory and in applied microeconomics encompasses the effect of financial incentives on fertility, and the economics of marriage. Salanié is currently working with Alfred Galichon and with Pierre-André Chiappori and Yoram Weiss on several projects that advance matching models of the marriage market. They derive assumptions under which the data identify the underlying preference parameters. Chiappori, Salanié and Weiss apply this approach in order to evaluate how the returns to education on the marriage market have changed over time. Galichon and Salanié have developed a general, flexible empirical strategy that they plan to use to explore the determinants of marriage and partner choice in various countries.
