At last night’s Annual Dinner, the winner of the 2018/19 Rybczynski Prize was announced. This year the prize was awarded to two essays and our congratulations go to Jack Britton for his essay “The returns to higher education: new evidence from administrative data in the UK” and Jennifer Lambert and Steven Paling for their essay on “Why are patients waiting longer for emergency care in England?”. Sponsored by KPMG, the essay competition is now in its 19th year, and is in memory of the late Tad Rybczynski, an eminent economist and long-served former Chairman of the Society. Members can read a copy of the winning essays in the Reading Room.
The 2019/20 Competition will open in the Autumn. For more details email firstname.lastname@example.org
