Why has obesity risen despite us eating less? Rachel Griffith and Pierre Dubois talk about her work, which showed how the amount of exercise we get from modern life has played a massive role. Rachel Griffith was elected President of the European Economic Association for 2015.

Rachel gave the Presidential address at the 2015 EEA-ESEM conference in Mannheim on this topic.
