ANNOUNCEMENT OF A MAJOR PRIZE COMPETITION
Thorstein Veblen was born on 30 July 1857. In order to commemorate
the 150th anniversary of his birth, the Association for Evolutionary
Economics (AFEE) and the European Association for Evolutionary
Political Economy (EAEPE) will co-sponsor the Veblen 150 Prize Competition.
Anyone may submit a written work. Those who submit written work will
be considered a candidate for the prize.
Candidates will be expected to submit written works on the nature of
institutions, the theory of institutional evolution, the
philosophical foundations of institutional and evolutionary
economics, or the application of institutional or evolutionary theory
to economic policy. These themes reflect Veblenian concerns.
Contestants will be divided into two groups:
(1) Candidates born on or after 1 January 1973, or currently enrolled
PhD students, or candidates who were awarded their PhD on or after 1
(2) Candidates who do not qualify under (1) above.
Submitted works may be unpublished, or published no earlier than
2005. Books, articles or PhD theses may be considered. Up to four
prizes shall be awarded. For each of group (1) and group (2) there
will be up to two prizes of 2,000 GBP each.
Candidates must submit their work to Geoff Hodgson, to be received by
30 June 2007. Submissions must be on a single electronic file (to
<mailto:G.M.Hodgson at herts.ac.uk>G.M.Hodgson at herts.ac.uk) or six
printed copies of the work (to Prof G Hodgson, The Business School,
University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield, Hertfordshire AL10 9AB, UK).
Current Trustees of FEED as well as members of the councils of EAEPE
and AFEE in 2006 or 2007 shall be ineligible to enter this competition.
The prizes will be judged by a panel nominated jointly by AFEE and
EAEPE and by the Foundation for European Economic Development (FEED).
The prizes are funded by FEED (a registered UK charity).
