Jonas Vlachos awarded the Myrdal Prize 2012


The Gunnar Myrdal Prize 2012 has been awarded Jonas Vlachos, who is affiliated researchers to IFN, for his article "Is profit and competition suitable for schools?". The article was published in the National Economic Association's journal Ekonomisk Debatt No. 4, 2012.

The Prize is awarded each year by Swedbank for the best article of the year in this journal. The reason that Jonas Vlachos was awarded is said to be that, among other things, "the competition and profit motive has come to play an increasingly important role in Swedish schools. Jonas Vlachos discusses in an insightful way, a number of issues raised by this development."
