In January the website launched a contest: What’s the 8th way to think like a 21st Century economist?
According to the website, results were supposed to be published online in early May, and entries (including the non-winning ones) were likely to be shared online as well, to foster discussions.
According to this tweet: https://twitter.com/KateRaworth/status/1117819516447277056 the contest received over 250 entries. People clearly saw the contest as an opportunity to share ideas, and did share theirs, confident they were going to be considered, and probably also shared online and discussed.
The question is: What happened to these ideas? Why does the website show no updates on this topic (not even an “apologies for the delay, we’re busy, expect an update in X weeks”), when at least one update was due in early May?
It’s late May now, and the contest ideas, instead of being circulated as promised, seem to be just forgotten.
This is bad both for the individuals who sent their ideas, and more in general for the world, that would potentially benefit from their circulation.
I am sorry I am writing this post, but in the same time I did not create this situation, and I have legitimate reasons to be tired of it and disappointed. I am writing this post because I care about this debate. I really do. And this situation hurts.
