Effective Strategies on How to Restore Limited Government Through Sound Money

Feel free to use your own title. However, please make reference to which topic(s) of then above listed your essay is addressing. Description: In its second year, Atlas is holding an essay contest in order to raise awareness and promote knowledge about sound money, and to identify young talents whose keen understanding of this subject will, hopefully, steer the direction of monetary policy toward sound free-market principles. The contest is open to junior faculty, policy writers, graduate and undergraduate students in the US and abroad. While all essays must be written in English, there will be a separate category for foreign contestants whose English is not their first language. Two winners from this category will be chosen. Participants in the essay contest must address one of the Essay Topics listed above (or a combination of them). Essays will be judged on the basis of clarity of writing and quality of thought. Judges will be looking for thoughtful essays that reveal that the writer has considered the benefits of free economies. Please read this entire page, including the sections on Eligibility and Essay Guidelines, before submitting your paper. Eligibility: To be eligible, you must be 35 years old or younger, a junior faculty member or a student of a fully-accredited university, or a policy writer connected to a think tank or a policy institute. Essay Guidelines: Essays must be written in English. Essay must have a cover page with the essay’s title and the name of the author. Essay must be at least 1500 words but no more than 8000 words. Essay must be an original work written by the submitter and must not have been previously published elsewhere. Atlas prefers a writing style which is accessible to the educated laymen, but rigorous enough as to be used in college and university courses. Atlas prefers well-researched papers with references and footnotes that back up assertions, but we note that our judges are not looking for the paper with the most footnotes.
