Reflections of Past Committee Members

Philip LanePhD Harvard, Governor Central Bank of Ireland, Editor 1990 SER

'A hallmark of the Trinity economics department (both when I was a student and still today) is that there are numerous opportunities to write about economics in an essay format. The ability to write well is a crucial requirement for career success in many fields and can also offer much by way of personal fulfilment. The SER provides a unique outlet for the best economics essays each year and I am always impressed by the quality of the contributions. On the production side, the editorial and publication process is a tremendous learning opportunity for the SER committee, as well as the origin of many long-lasting friendships.'

Vinay NairMSc LSE, Director Social and Sustainable Capital (SASC), London, Debates Manager 1999 SER

'From its humble but ambitious beginnings over twenty-five years ago, the SER has evolved to become a high-profile and arguably the finest student society in Trinity. I feel fortunate to have been involved in the SER, as it helped me to develop new friendships, an unrelenting pursuit of a quality outcome - be it the journal or a debate against world-class opposition - and an intellectual rigour and interest in economics.'
