CERGE-EI and Nadace CERGE-EI invite current university students and recent graduates to submit papers to the New Economic Talent 2015 competition. NET 2015 is under the auspices of the US Embassy in Prague.
The competition is open to current Bachelor’s and Master’s students (full-time or part-time) or Bachelor’s and Master’s graduates (up to two years after graduation) in any field, who are interested in contemporary economic issues and wish to better understand the forces and processes that ‘shape the world’.
We are proud to announce that CERGE-EI doctoral students have taken all three top prizes in this year’s Young Economist of the Year competition of the Czech Economic Society.
Vojtěch Bartoš took the first place for his paper “Sharing Norms during Seasonal Food Shortages: Experimental Evidence from Afghanistan.” Olga Popova came second with “Can Religion Insure against Aggregate Shocks to Happiness? The Case of Transition Countries.” The third prize went to Klára Kalíšková for her paper “Labor Supply Consequences of Family Taxation: Evidence from the Czech Republic.”
CERGE-EI students were also successful in 2013.
The annual competition, which is organized by the Czech Economic Society, seeks to identify and award the most talented young students of economics.
