2017/2018 Events

  • Erratum: The authorship of the essay “Homo Oeconomicus: Useful Abstraction or Perversion of Reality?”(page 95) has been incorrectly attributed in some copies of the 2018 Student Economic Review. The author of this essay was in fact Sophie Donnelly, Senior Sophister. 
    The essay “Not so Rational: Reflection on the Homo Economicus” by Juliette Weyand, Senior Sophister, has also been selected for publication in the review and was omitted in these copies. The online version of the Review, and copies sent to publication Libraries have attributed authorship correctly and have included all selected essays.
    The committee would like to apologise for this error and any confusion caused.
  • We are very happy to announce that due to a very generous donation by Ciarán O’Neill, the financial future of the SER is secure for many years to come. Mr O’Neill is a scholar of Trinity College and a former General Manager of the Student Economic Review. Since graduating from Trinity he has been involved in portfolio management, security analysis and economic research.
