European Society for the History of Economic Thought

ESHET Young Researcher Award

"I believe the students we train would end up as better economists if they had greater exposure to the history of economic thought (which, at this point, is pretty much null)" (Dani Rodrik).


The ESHET YOUNG RESEARCHER AWARD is a new award established in 2009. This prize recognizes scholarly achievements of historians of economic thought at an early stage of their career. The prize is awarded to scholars below the age of 40 at the time of the annual conference in recognition of outstanding publications in the history of economic thought. The prize consists of a five-year membership of ESHET, a waivering of the conference fee when the prize is awarded, and a certificate signed by the President of ESHET.
