2021 Economics Case Competition: Guidelines and Rubrics
Overview The Brattle Economics Case Competition presents teams an opportunity to go beyond their economics coursework and analyze a real-world issue related to the modern economy. Participants are given a list of topic questions, from which they choose one to formulate a coherent response and prepare a 8-10 minute presentation. Case presentations will be judged primarily on the strength of the argument, depth of research and delivery, as detailed in the rubrics.
Case Question Impact of Disruptive Technology on the Economy: Emerging technologies create new sectors and benefit the consumer, but also have disruptive effects on the existing economic functioning. How do these pros and cons compare, and how should we manage potential tradeoffs?
