Mark Blaug Student Essay Prize 2016 – Submissions have opened!

Devised in collaboration with the Foundation for European Economic Development (FEED), we are proud to announce that the Mark Blaug Student Essay Prize is open for submissions!

“Rather than applying economics to a particular problem, eligible essays must reflect critically on the state of economics itself, as Mark Blaug did in many of his works. Critical reflections may include the assumptions adopted, the suitability of the concepts deployed, the mode of analysis, the role of mathematical models, the use of econometrics, real-world relevance, and so on.”

Essays are limited to 6000 words, have in the past been judged by economists such as Robert Skidelsky and Ha-Joon Chang, and carry prizes of up to £500.
