Announcement: Winners of the I, [Object] Video Contest

NOVEMBER 01, 2013 by CHUCK GRIMMETT

Last March, we announced the I, [Object] Video Contest. Students were asked to make creative videos based on Leonard Read's I, Pencil, which describes the production of a simple pencil as a means to imparting numerous economic concepts such as emergent order, the price system, and cooperation. 

This contest was funded thanks to a generous grant from the Ralph Smeed Memorial Foundation.

(Here is a reminder of the rules.)

Here are the results:

First Prize, $1500 Winner: Calvin Tran


Second Prize, $1000 Winner: Wyatt Buttars


Third Prize, $500 Winner: Natalia LeDang

CURRENT ISSUE

July/August 2014

The United States' corporate tax burden is the highest in the world, but innovators will always find a way to duck away from Uncle Sam's reach. Doug Bandow explains how those with the means are renouncing their citizenship in increasing numbers, while J. Dayne Girard describes the innovative use of freeports to shield wealth from the myriad taxes and duties imposed on it as it moves around the world. Of course the politicians brand all of these people unpatriotic, hoping you won't think too hard about the difference between the usual crony-capitalist suspects and the global creative elite that have done so much to improve our lives. In a special tech section, Joseph Diedrich, Thomas Bogle, and Matthew McCaffrey look at various ways these innovators add value to our lives--even in ways they probably never expected.
