Meet the experts: the economics of animal welfare

Public opinion seems more and more sensitive to the animal cause, but what do we know about the economics of the animal condition? In this webinar, our experts will shed light on the economics of animal welfare, analyze the determinants of meat consumption as well as the evolution of our diet and income and the evolution of our consumption and its impacts on our health and on the planet.

In 2021, he published a book "How to save animals? an economy on the animal welfare”, puf editions.
