Praise from the judges

An exciting sketch of an “existentialist” extension/revision of behavioural economics.
—Uskali Mäki

Very well-written and demonstrates excellent understanding of the relevant literatures. Some interesting, creative applications, and a thought-provoking argument.
—Joseph Mazor

This is a clear exposition of connections between historically distant literatures that has real potential value.
—Don Ross

Very well grounded in both literatures that it expertly brings together. Clear summary of both literatures, nicely illustrated. The two literatures really are brought into a genuine conversation, with the paper brimming with rich and provocative conjectures and insights.
—Christopher Clarke

About the winners

Malte Dold is an assistant professor in the economics department at Pomona College in California. He holds a master’s degree in Philosophy and Economics from the University of Bayreuth, and received his PhD in Economics from the University of Freiburg. His research lies at the intersection of behavioral economics, philosophy of economics, and history of economic thought.

Alexa Stanton graduated from Pomona College magna cum laude in 2020, with a major in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE), and a minor in Computer Science. In her thesis, Alexa examined the links between existentialism and behavioral economics, and how these links can inform perspectives on artificially intelligent prediction algorithms.

About the Prize

The prize includes a cash sum of 500 Euros.
