SER events: Yale Debate
This year as usual the Student Economic Review will be hosting, in conjunction with the Hist, a debate on Wednesday the 21st of January in the GMB against a team from Yale University from 7.30pm.
The chairperson of the debate will be Bill Emmott, a former editor of The Economist.
The adjudication panel will be made up of: Journalist and TCD senator, Sen. Shane Ross, Economics editor of Newstalk, Marc Coleman, RTE broadcaster, Aine Lawlor, Economics and Research director of NCB Stockbrokers, Dr. Constantin Gurdgiev the Political/Economics Officer from the US Embassy, Dwight Nystrom.
The motion will be “Boston or Berlin?: This house believes that the European social model is superior.” The Trinity team of Josephine Curry (c) (Masters in Law) , Shane Farragher (SS Economics), and Barra Roantree (SF Economics & Political Science) will be proposing the motion. Josephine and Shane have both won the UCD Intervarsity and have represented Trinity at Oxford, Cambridge and the World Championships. They are considered among Trinity's best debaters. Barra is the chair of the Trinity Greens, and a finalist in Hist, Phil and Intervarsity competitions is an up and coming debater who has already developed a reputation for himself as a fiery and passionate speaker. The Yale team consists of Jeff Geels, Haley Nix and Nathan Blevins.
All students from all years, economics or not are welcome to attend in what has always been an interesting and closely fought debate and will be followed by a drinks reception in the Hist Conversation Room.
