Wolfson Economics Prize

The debate around the eurozone problems is reaching new levels.
As of yesterday there is a prize assigned for any economist that is capable of creating a painless scenario for the demise of the euro and the eurozone.

The prize is named after its sponsor Lord Wolfson, chief executive of Next, and it presents the second largest prize in economics after the Nobel Prize, a total of £250,000. What an incentive!

The conditions and more details on the prize can be found here.
