The 4th Annual Madrid Conference on Austrian Economics took place via online on November 19th and 20th. As a novelty, this edition was sponsored by Macrotrends, an Austrian newsletter for investors interested in the macroeconomic scenerario, led by the Austrian, radical subjectivist economist, Brecht Arnaert. Brecht, in addition to sponsoring the conference, funded the Macrotrends Prize for the best three papers that developed the subjectivism of Austrian economics.
I had the honor to be awarded the 3rd place in the Macrotrends Pize with my paper “Economic measurement and feminist economics: an Austrian approach“. The first place went to Bernardo Ferrero, for his paper: Innovationism, alertness and uncertainty-bearing: An Austrian perspective on Schumpeter and Kirzner‘s theories of entrepreneurship, and the second place to my friend, Artur Marion Ceolin, for his paper: The positivist influences on intrapreneurship: An Austrian analysis. I would like to congratulate both of them for their excellent works, which received the well-deserved recognition.
Finally, I would also like to express my gratitude to Brecht Arnaert for sponsoring the conference and funding the prize, and to the scientific committee for organizing and considering my paper for the prize.
It was certainly an enriching conference, where scholars and researchers from around the world were able to share their latest research on Austrian economics and enhance their works thanks to insightful feedback from attendees.
I look forward to the next edition, the 5th Annual Madrid Conference on Austrian Economics, in which we can meet again in person in Madrid.
