Florentin Glötzl and Ar­mon Rezai win the Egon-Matzn­er­-Award for So­cioeco­nom­ics 2018

Our in­sti­tute mem­bers Florentin Glötzl and Ar­mon Rezai have been awar­ded the Egon-Matzn­er­-Award for So­cioeco­nom­ics 2018 for their article „A sect­oral net lend­ing per­spect­ive on Europe“ pub­lished in the Cam­bridge Journal of Eco­nom­ics, which sheds light on the role of lend­ing and bor­row­ing be­ha­vior of house­holds, busi­nesses, the gov­ern­ment and the for­eign sector for the build-up of the crisis. The award was han­ded over at the an­nual con­fer­ence by the Centre of Pub­lic Fin­ance and In­fra­struc­ture Policy of TU Vi­enna on 1st March 2018 which in­cluded con­tri­bu­tions by former pres­id­ent Heinz Fis­cher and Stephan Schul­meister (WIFO) as well as a panel dis­cus­sion on the fu­ture of af­ford­able hous­ing. The laud­a­tion speech by Prof. Wolfgang Blaas high­lighted the sound com­bin­a­tion of the­or­et­ical found­a­tion and im­me­di­ate policy rel­ev­ance as a main reason for the in­ter­na­tional jury’s de­cision to con­fer the award to Florentin Glötzl and Ar­mon Rezai for their article.
