Cure those bonus blues

Was your bonus smaller than expected this year? Feeling unappreciated at work? Do you think you can write an insightful essay on the world of international finance? Not only will you be honouring the esteemed Jacques de Larosière, but the top prize is $10,000.

To pay tribute to a man who has had a brilliant career, the Institute of International Finance is sponsoring the Jacques de Larosière Essay in Global Finance. For the recently retired EBRD president a parting plaque did not seem enough for a man who has held leading positions at the EBRD, the Banque de France and the IMF, and who has led countries and creditors through the debt crisis of the 1980s and the economic transformation of central and eastern Europe.

The task is to write a cutting-edge essay, of no more than 4,000 words, on a topic relating to emerging markets, global markets or financial supervisory and regulatory issues. The winning author will receive $10,000. Second prize is $5,000, and a third essay will receive an honourable mention. The list of judges is impressive. Toyoo Gyohten, the president of the Institute for International Monetary Affairs will chair the panel.
