RBA Essay Competition 2009

Adrian Wong has asked me to remind students about the RBA Essay Competition, open to citizens and permanent residents of Australia who are currently enrolled in an undergraduate program at an accredited Australian university. This year’s topic should be a cinch…

Policy Responses to the Global Financial Crisis
Essays should:
a) discuss the appropriateness of these policy responses, and the extent to which the exact nature of these responses might matter; and
b) provide an overview of the theoretical arguments and also briefly consider the evidence, including the approaches adopted by different countries in the past.

Entries close 21 August 2009. First prize is $1500, second is $750. There is also a prize of $500 for the best essay from a first-year student.

  1. “enrolled in an undergraduate program at an accredited Australian university”

    I am intrigued as to what unaccredited Australian university the RBA is trying to exclude.

  2. Adrian Wong says:

    Many thanks Andrew! :)

  3. Brendan says:

    Hrm, I quite like this topic.

  4. Why is it only open to citizens and permanent residents of Australia? There must be many thousands of other students enrolled in an undergraduate program at an Australian University. They already pay more than most others – cuts down the competition a fair bit.

    Maybe next year’s question could be on whether the terms of the RBA Essay Competition is a non-tariff barrier or an unfair restraint of trade?
