Dr Julio Segura

A ubiquitous reference in Spanish economic thinking, Dr Segura has played a fundamental role in the modernisation of the study of microeconomics in Spanish universities by combining expository clarity with analytical rigour. These qualities are reflected in his textbooks. Together with his advisory work on public politics related to the labour market, social protection programmes and competition defence policy, he has made a decisive contribution to the smooth operation of important institutions such as the Bank of Spain or the CNMV (the Spanish National Securities Market Commission), over which he currently presides.
