Young Economists’ Essay Awards

The purpose of the Young Economists' Essay Awards (YEEA) is to encourage young researchers to participate in the conference. The awards are given for exceptionally innovative and high-level papers written by researchers who

  • are under the age of 35
  • have completed their PhD less than 5 years ago.

For papers with multiple authors each author should satisfy both criteria.

Each year, one of the YEEAs is dedicated to the late Paul Geroski for the paper that makes the most significant policy contribution.

The winners in this year's YEEA competition are:

Paul Grieco (Pennsylvania State University) with the paper “Productivity and Quality in Health Care: Evidence from the Dialysis Industry”.

Marit Hinnosaar (Northwestern University) with the paper “Time Inconsistency and Alcohol Sales Restrictions”.

Christian Waibel (ETH Zurich) with the paper “Price Competition and Reputation in Credence Goods Markets: Experimental Evidence”, (8th EARIE Paul Geroski Prize for the most significant policy contribution).

The selection committee this year included John Asker, Luis Cabral, Liran Einav, Patrick Rey, Yossi Spiegel and Tommaso Valletti.
