June 2-3, Toulouse Economics and Biology Workshop

June 02, 2022 Events

Theme of the year “Production and Sharing”

The event will take place in TSE Building, on June 2-3, 2022.

As a species, Homo sapiens stands out as somewhat of an oddity due to the sharp division of labor across sexes and ages. Moreover, this division of labor is accompanied by extensive sharing of resources within communities. Much research in economics, (evolutionary) biology, and (evolutionary) anthropology has been devoted to the following question, which is proposed to be the central question of the workshop: What are the determinants and consequences of production and sharing choices? The three disciplines have tended to focus on different aspects of this question.
