The prizes of £2000 each were presented at >the EAEPE conference in Porto in Portugal on Saturday 3 November 2007. > >Winners of Category 1 >For 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. > * Olivier Brette, ‘Expanding the Dialogue Between Institutional >Economics and Contemporary Evolutionary Economics: Veblen’s Methodology as >a Framework’, Journal of Economic Issues, 40(2), June 2006, pp. 493-500. >This published journal article addresses the question of possible links >between various traditions of institutional economics, neo-Schumpeterian >evolutionary economics and the regulation school. In a highly creative >move, Brette uses Veblen’s methodological framework to consider points of >both dialogue and possible fusion. > * Zdravka K. Todorova, Reconsidering the Role of Households in Economic >Theory, PhD Thesis, University of Missouri – Kansas City, 2007. >This ambitious PhD thesis considers the role of households within a >micro-macro framework developed from a Post Keynesian and chartalist >monetary theory of production. The work adds a further, Veblenian dimension >by addressing the roles of gender and production in a pecuniary culture. It >is a highly skilful and creative synthesis. > >Winners of Category 2 >For candidates who did not qualify for Category 1. > * Avner Greif, Institutions and the Path to the Modern Economy: Lessons >from Medieval Trade (Cambridge and New York: Cambridge University Press, >2006). >Greif’s book focuses on the evolution of the basic economic institutions of >property and contract enforcement from medieval times. Using a combination >of economic theory and rich empirical material, Greif develops an original >and powerful explanation of the development of these institutions, which >respects both cultural and historical specificities. > * Arild Vatn, Institutions and the Environment (Cheltenham and >Northampton: UK and MA, USA, 2005). >Vatn’s book addresses the urgent question of environmental policy and shows >that an understanding of the role of institutions is vital in this area. It >incorporates insights on institutions from both mainstream and heterodox >traditions of thought. Magisterial and comprehensive, it is both a textbook >and an inspiring, pioneering monograph.
