April 17, 2019 — Eccles Prize for Excellence in Economic Writing featuring Dani Rodrik
Please join us for the George S. Eccles Prizes ceremony, featuring Dani Rodrik, winner of the Eccles Prize for Excellence in Economic Writing for his book Straight Talk on Trade: Ideas for a Sane World Economy, moderated by Dean Glenn Hubbard.
The George S. Eccles Prize for Excellence in Economic Writing is awarded annually to the author of the best book on economics that bridges theory and practice. The selection is made by a committee of leading Columbia Business School faculty and a member of the Eccles family. The two primary criteria for selection are academic rigor and layperson accessibility.
The George S. Eccles Research Award in Finance and Economics is part of the George S. Eccles Prize for Excellence in Economic writing, and is given to faculty members whose research is outstanding in quality and insight and emphasizes the bridging of theory to practice. The selected faculty members each receive a $30,000 award to be used toward their research.
A 1922 graduate of Columbia Business School, the late George S. Eccles established this prize and speaker forum at his alma mater in 1986 to foster greater interest in and public discourse about economic theory, practice and issues.
