TWO MAIN AIMS:
PROMOTING A TRULY SCIENTIFIC APPROACH TO ECONOMIC PHENOMENA
SUPPORTING SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS ALONE AGAINST EVERY KIND OF CONFORMISM AND PREJUDICE
The Maurice Allais Foundation has decided to establish a Maurice Allais Prize for Economics. It was awarded for the first time 31st May 2013 and is in principle to be awarded thereafter every two years.
Beyond the purpose to honor and perpetuate the memory of one of the greatest names in French economic thought, Nobel Laureate in Economic Science in 1988, the Foundation aims at encouraging prolongation of his work by bringing help to orienting and promoting economic research in the direction shown and followed by Maurice Allais during his entire life: using a truly scientific approach to the analysis of economic problems and rejecting any explanation which would rest on ideological thoughts or conceptual prejudices, whichever they might be.
Work bearing on the general themes covered in the works of Maurice Allais are particularly welcome.
