2008, august , I work for the French Treasury, on pension schemes.
The French pension system is very complex : there are numerous pension
schemes, the rules are intricated. Therefore, it requires a lot of
brainstorming to understand how it works, and how it can be improved :
this is what I am aiming at.
Before that, I worked for the French
National Statistics Institute,
where I compute and analyse
quarterly GDP and components (such as consumption expenditure, GFCF,
exports/imports of services and goods, etc.). During those two years, I
did mainly two things (besides the basics) : 1rst is changing the
volume concept, to chain linked volumes (it was a hard time, maybe even
more for our users); 2nd is the co-editing of the Business Cycle
Analysis document prepared by the French National Statistical Institute.
was formerly in charge
of the sector accounts : the French system is great, since it contains
all the non-financial accounts (financial accounts are constructed by
the Banque de France), for all institutional sectors. The French social
and fiscal system is very dense, and I needed to understand the main
lines and some very small details sometimes. I learned a lot on this
analysis is very important for my job in the Quarterly National Accounts, I have therefore written tools
for the R software.
