FEE Alum Receives a Prestigious Award

Tsvetelin M. Tsonevski

The Society for the Development of Austrian Economics announced today that Colin Harris, a FEE alum, is one of the three winners of the 2012 Carl Menger Essay Contest. Colin’s research paper ”Piracy as a Common Pool Resource: A Case Study of Online Pirate Communities Avoiding Tragedy,” was selected by a panel of three other FEE alumni, Jeremy Hoperdahl, Emily Skarbek and Daniel Smith. The  contest is intended to encourage undergraduate scholarship in the Austrian tradition. As part of the award, Harris will attend and present at the Southern Economic Association annual meeting in New Orleans, November 16-18.

Harris, a senior at Florida State University, attended the 2012 Austrian economics seminar in Irvington, NY where he had the opportunity to listen to lectures from Israel Kirzner, Peter Boettke, Steven Horwitz, Lawrence White, Roger Garrison, Christopher Coyne, and Peter Leeson. Colin’s future plans include graduate school and career as a professor of economics.

Congratulations, Colin!
