Prof. Ahn Tae-hyun Receives 49th Maeil Business Economist Award

 

 

Prof. Ahn Tae-hyun of the Economics Department received the 49th Maeil Business Newspaper Economist Award. The theme of his studies published in the Journal of Public Economics, a renowned economics journal, was on allocation for early re-entry in social insurance, one of the most prominent topics in Korean society recently. It is remarkable that a paper on analyzing the economic phenomena of Korea drew attention from overseas academic circles.

 

Prof. Ahn Tae-hyun said, “I’ve been focusing on analyzing and identifying the influence of the social system including the employment insurance of Korea. As it is closely related to the daily lives of Koreans, social insurance needs to be thoroughly studied.” He added, “I am delighted to receive this award with the paper analysis on the reality of the Korean economy.”
