Summer of success in Economics essay competitions
18 Sep 2013
Our Upper Sixth students have been busy over the summer taking part in a variety of Economics essay writing competitions, with some excellent results.
In the Royal Economic Society essay competition, Georgina Evans achieved third place (out of 1,150 entrants nationally) for her essay entitled “Should the experience of China silence those who think democracy is good for growth?”. Her essay is now available to read on the Royal Economic Society website. Our congratulations also go to Angus Rea and Eoin Sweeney who were highly commended for their entries in the same competition, which placed them in the top 45 entries.
In a second essay competition organised by the University of Cambridge’s Marshall Society (the student Economics society), Christine Cheng was named runner-up for her response to the question: “How does economics explain the Gangnam Style phenomenon?”.
These are fantastic achievements – well done to all those involved!
