He also teaches microeconomics at the University of Paris VII and is a lecturer at Sciences Po Paris.
In 2007 he published in Eyrolles Petit précis d'économie appliquée à l'usage du citoyen pragmatique. He argues about the false reasons for the apathy of the French economy and underlines the structural reasons : over-regulation of economic activity by omnipotent state that penalizes economic growth and wealth creation that could benefit all. He is seen as one of the young economics that are in favour of a classic liberal economy. His book was awarded the prestigious Prix Turgot of 2008.
