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 three 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 2016:
Eric Ohrn (Grinnell College, USA) for his paper Investment and Employment Responses to State Adoption of Federal Accelarated Depreciation Policies.
Pierre Bachas (University of California at Berkeley, USA, at the time of submission; now World Bank and currently doing a post-doc at Princeton University, USA; presenting author) and Mauricio Soto (Banco Central de Costa Rica) for their paper Not(ch) Your Average Tax System: Corporate Taxation Under Weak Enforcement.
