I am an economist specialised in macroeconomics and industrial organisation. I believe that economic analysis and statistics, when properly used, are a powerful tool to make key decisions and design enlightened policies to improve consumers' welfare within and across countries. My aim is to contribute to this effort by continuously learning from experienced economists and decision makers, and by using those skills to influence people's thinking and acting. I am convinced that aligned incentives and similar expertise/interests allow people from very different culture to cooperate and work efficiently together.
Career update: Charles is now an Economist at the National Bank of Belgium in Brussels.
