Posted On: 03/11/14

Year 13 student Calum Davy has just been awarded second prize in the annual Institute for Economic Affairs Essay Competition.  This was a commendable achievement in such a prestigious competition which attracts entries from A level Economics students from top schools across the country.  Calum received his award at a presentation near the IEA offices in Westminster and was presented with his certificate and prize of £250.  His essay was entitled ‘How much influence can or should governments have over the business cycle?' ​ Prizes were presented by Dr Stephen Davies, the IEA’s Education Director, who also gave a talk on the history and purpose of the IEA and why being an Economist is an honourable profession! Calum has also been encouraged to apply for an internship with the IEA this summer so his award could lead to some very useful work experience in his chosen field of study.
