How do you make a perfect match—between doctors and hospitals, between schools and students, and even between kidneys and patients? Economics is the study of human choice, and on Wednesday 12 May, 40 Year 12 Economics students made a great choice to attend the annual Economics experience at the University of Adelaide. We experienced a workshop based on Lloyd Shapley and Alvin Roth’s match-making work which won them the 2012 Nobel Prize for Economics. This important work in Economics has helped people from Health, Engineering and Education, among many other industries make better matches, and highlights the practical application of Economics to a wide variety of fields.
Any students looking to find their perfect match can choose Economics in Year 11 and 12 and gain a taste in the various electives that will be available for Year 9 and 10 students.
Thank you to Mr Colsey and the University of Adelaide’s School of Economics for arranging another great experience.
