The Atlas Sound Money Project is proud to announce the winners of its 2011 Sound Money Essay Contest.

In its second year, this essay contest aimed to engage students, junior faculty, and policy writers al over the world in thinking about sound money principles with relevance to today’s economic problems.  With the theme “Money in Crisis,” we wanted to challenge these young people to identify the root causes of our monetary problems and suggest sound policy solutions.

It has been gratifying to receive well-crafted and well-reasoned essays from undergraduate and graduate students and young scholars from think tank and policy communities in different parts of the world.  Half of the essays that we received came from students and scholars based in the United States while the other half came from abroad (with 17 countries represented!).  Especially outstanding are the following winning essays:
