CERGE-EI Students Dominate Young Economist of the Year Competition

1 December, 2014

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 successful also in 2013.

The annual competition seeks to identify and award the most talented young students of economics.
