Mahin Vekaria has been named as this year’s winner of the Schroders Economics Prize.
This is an essay competition open to all economists across the Haberdashers' family of schools – and entries are typically written by Lower Sixth students over the summer holiday prior to the Upper Sixth year.
This year’s essay title was: “Are tariffs bad for all economies?”. Mr Catley received 21 entries and chose the essays by Mahin, Ben Schwarzmann and Danial Surti as the top three to submit for external judging.
The Schroders markers called his essay “ambitious and thoughtful” and said that it showed “a great use of game theory.” Mahin received his prize at a lunch at Haberdashers' Hall on Thursday 24 January.
