Subject: Veblen 150 Prize Competition


Thorstein Veblen was born on 30 July 1857. In order to commemorate the 150th anniversary of his birth, the Association for Evolutionary Economics (AFEE) and the European Association for Evolutionary Political Economy (EAEPE) will co-sponsor the Veblen 150 Prize Competition.

Anyone may submit a written work. Those who submit written work will be considered a candidate for the prize.

Candidates will be expected to submit written works on the nature of institutions, the theory of institutional evolution, the philosophical foundations of institutional and evolutionary economics, or the application of institutional or evolutionary theory to economic policy. These themes reflect Veblenian concerns.

Contestants will be divided into two groups:

(1) Candidates born on or after 1 January 1973, or currently enrolled PhD students, or candidates who were awarded their PhD on or after 1 January 2003.

(2) Candidates who do not qualify under (1) above. 

Submitted works may be unpublished, or published no earlier than 2005. Books, articles or PhD theses may be considered. Up to four prizes shall be awarded. For each of group (1) and group (2) there will be up to two prizes of 2,000 GBP each. 

Candidates must submit their work to Geoff Hodgson, to be received by 30 June 2007. Submissions must be on a single electronic file (to G.M.Hodgson@herts.ac.uk) or six printed copies of the work (to Prof G Hodgson, The Business School, University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield, Hertfordshire AL10 9AB, UK).

Current Trustees of FEED as well as members of the councils of EAEPE and AFEE in 2006 or 2007 shall be ineligible to enter this competition.

The prizes will be judged by a panel nominated jointly by AFEE and EAEPE and by the Foundation for European Economic Development (FEED). The prizes are funded by FEED (a registered UK charity).
