Olha que notícia legal! Uma competição da IAES, anual, com o que seria o melhor trabalho final (mas não precisa, pode ser um artigo derivado apenas da vontade do estudante de explorar um tema). Digo, os quatro melhores. Vou deixar em negrito o nome dos autores e os títulos dos trabalhos.
It is our pleasure to announce that the winner of the International Atlantic Economic Society’s 11th annual Best Undergraduate Paper Competition is:
Hameem Raees Chowdhury, Joint-liability in microcredit: Evidence from Bangladesh, University of Warwick, UK
Mr. Chowdhury received a $500 check and will have his paper printed in an upcoming issue of the Atlantic Economic Journal. In addition, each of the three finalists, listed alphabetically below, received $100 from the Society and will have 800-word summaries of their papers published in the Atlantic Economic Journal. All of the students also received handsome commemorative plaques to mark the occasion.
Alexander Billy, Granger-causality testing within the Eurozone: Policy analysis of the efficacy of the European Central Bank’s policy tools, St. Vincent College, U.S.
Evelina Lazareva, Do rating agencies confirm or surprise the market? Market efficiency hypothesis vs conspiracy theory, Nottingham Trent University, UK
Virginia Minni, Can greater bank capital lead to less bank lending? An analysis of the bank-level evidence from Europe, University of Warwick, UK
The IAES and the http://www.EconSources.com underwriting sponsor would like to extend our congratulations to all of the students who entered the competition and submitted so many fine papers. While it is not possible to acknowledge more than one winning entry in a competition such as this, we would like everyone to know that all of the students did an outstanding job!
In addition, we would also like to extend our appreciation to the universities and colleges that promised to provide the financial support that enabled their students to enter the competition and travel to Boston where the final stage of the competition took place. Finally, we would also like to thank all of the judges for the many hours they spent reading the many fine entries.
Acho que todo mundo que faz monografia sabe que a diversidade de temas nunca foi um problema, não é? Claro, a famosa econometria (que muitos acham que não serve para nada) está sempre presente nestes prêmios, seja diretamente, no título, ou indiretamente, no artigo.
Muito legal mesmo deve ser o cara ganhar um prêmio assim. Meus parabéns a todos.
