IIPF Young Economists Award
The "IIPF Young Economists Award" was instituted in 2008, with the aim of encouraging young scholars who present their papers at the IIPF Annual Congress. An award committee, headed by the Scientific Chair of the respective congress and including further members, selects those papers presented at the congress that stand out for their scientific quality, creativity and relevance, and chooses up to two of them to be distinguished with this award.
The same rules apply for this award as for the "IIPF Peggy and Richard Musgrave Prize", namely that authors must be under 40 years old, that in the case of co-authored papers, all authors need to be under 40, and that age is measured as at the ending day of the Congress, when the prize is awarded. Authors who wish to be considered for this award should indicate this when submitting their papers for presentation at the Congress.
The IIPF gave two Young Economists Awards in 2017:
Arthur Seibold (London School of Economics, UK) for his paper Statutory Ages as Reference Points for Retirement: Evidence from Germany. Please click here for the updated version of this paper (Nov. 2017).
Samuel Stolper (University of Michigan, USA) for his paper Who Bears the Burden of Energy Taxes? The Role of Local Pass-Through.
