5 December, 2018

We are proud to announce that this year’s "Young Economist of the Year" competition was again a great success for CERGE-EI, with the two of the top three prizes awarded to CERGE-EI students.

Ludmila Matysková won the first prize for her paper "Bayesian Persuasion with Costly Information Acquisition". Matěj Bělín came third with "Time-invariant Regressors under Fixed Effects: Identification via a Proxy Variable".

The annual competition, which is organized by the Czech Economic Society, seeks to identify and award the most talented young students of economics.

Here, you can review the successful standing of CERGE-EI students in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.
