Economista francs, obtuvo elGerard Debreu Premio Nobel de Economa en 1983 por haber incorporado nuevos mtodos analticos a la teora econmica y por su rigurosa reformulacin de la teora del equilibrio general.

Nacido en Calais, Francia, el 4 de julio de 1921, Debreu, que adquiri la nacionalidad estadounidense en 1975, interrumpi sus estudios de Matemticas para enrolarse en el Ejrcito francs tras la invasin de Normanda por los Aliados en 1944, y los finaliz tras el conflicto.

Influido por la obra de Lon Walras, centr sus investigaciones en economa. Se march a Estados Unidos en 1950 con una beca Rockefeller y hasta 1960 trabaj en la Cowles Comission for Research in Economics en la Universidad de Chicago. En 1961 investig en el Center for Advanced Study in the Beahavoiral Sciences en Stanford, fue profesor asociado en la Universidad de Yale y en 1962 pas a la Universidad de Berkeley hasta su jubilacin en el ao 1991.

Falleci el 31 de diciembre de 2004.
