Tribute to Bernard Maris and to the other victims of the terrorist attacks

In sympathy with the families and victims of the recent terrorist attacks, the Cité de l’économie below gathered several messages of support and portraits published after the tragic death of Bernard Maris, economist and economics pedagogue.

First, the tribute of Christian Noyer, Governor of the Banque de France, to his colleague of the General Council of the Banque de France: “Bernard Maris was a man of heart, of culture and of great tolerance; we will truly miss him” (Banque de France press release of 7 January); “A kind and peaceful man, a man of culture and dialogue. Naturally, he assisted us with our Cité de l’économie et de la monnaie project; this economics professor was in his element and always involved. (…) Our differences regarding economics, which were real over the past months, never affected our relationship, which was forged by mutual esteem and common values. Extremely kind, with a caustic and mischievous mind, always smiling even in the face of adversity, this brave man sticked to his ideals until his tragic demise (…) » (Le Point, 10 January).
