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 the Young Economists Award in 2023 to:


Arun Advani (University of Warwick),
David Burgherr (London School of Economics) and
Andy Summers (London School of Economics)
for their paper "Taxation and Migration by the Super-Rich."

William Dodds (Tulane University, USA) for his paper "Solving Multidimensional Screening Problems Using a Generalized Single Crossing Property: Applications to Optimal Taxation."

Ilona Tsanko (ZEW Mannheim, Germany, and University of Zurich) for her paper "Would You Like To Super-Size Your Car? The Effect Of Environmental Subsidies On Emissions."
