Essay Competition Winner Published in Financial Times


The winner of this year’s Young Economist of the Year Essay Competition, Minna Moody-Stuart, has had her essay published in the Financial Times.

The Royal Economic Society, in partnership with the Financial Times, asked Year 12 and Year 13 students studying A-Level to submit a 1500-word essay on one of five chosen topics. Our judges chose Minna’s essay on Universal Basic Income as the best overall essay, as well as the best essays on each of the five titles.

The quality of this year’s submissions was exceptional and we would like to thank everyone who participated in the competition. You can find the full list of winners here.
