Confronted to the main issues that are shaping our world, we will address the forms of a renewed prosperity which is not anymore the only result of economic growth. The risk of a global secular stagnation, the rise of inequalities, the polarization of modern societies and the growing importance of an eco-responsibility are some of the preeminent purposes that will be explored.

The event will be dedicated then to define the bases of a new prosperity in accordance with the current changing globalization and its aftermaths.

For 16 years, les Rencontres Economiques d’Aix-en-Provence have brought together more and more eminent personalities. Last year, 230 speakers and 4000 people in the public attend to this meeting on the following theme “In a World of Turmoil, What is a Nation for?”. It was covered by 110 French and foreign journalists. 37 debates were followed live on our website by 30 000 people. This event becomes, through the years, the first European open and free economic forum.

Created in 2001 by Le Cercle des économistes, Les Rencontres Économiques d’Aix-en-Provence have become an incomparable meeting place for current economic thought from France, Europe and the world.
