Deadline: 31 January 2014Open to: students currently enrolled in an undergraduate programAward: trip to New York City for attending a seminar
The Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET) was created to broaden and accelerate the development of new economic thinking that can lead to solutions for the great challenges of the 21st century. INET is supporting this fundamental shift in economic thinking through research funding, community building, and spreading the word about the need for change. They already are a global community of thousands of new economic thinkers, ranging from Nobel Prize winning economists to teachers and students who have emerged out from the shadows of prevailing economic thought, attracted by the promise of a free and open economic discourse.
The Institute is seeking a select group of undergraduate students to participate in the filming of a free, three-day series of discussions on ethics and economics with Harvard Professor and philosopher Michael Sandel, the Institute’s newest Senior Fellow.
Applicants must be enrolled in an undergraduate program and be available in New York City from February 22-24, 2014. Some previous coursework in economics, philosophy, or political theory is preferred. The aim of the organizers is to recruit an outstanding group of students with a wide range of perspectives on the role of markets.
Trip to New York City from February 22 to 24, 2014 to attend a free seminar for undergraduates with Michael Sandel.
