The 2018 INOMICS Awards
Now in their second year, the INOMICS Awards 2018 once again recognise the career and study opportunities offered by universities and institutions around the world, measuring their reputation and attraction for INOMICS users. This year, however, we are dividing up the awards into categories to showcase the different qualities we recognise as important for our users, to better help advise them with their academic careers and acknowledge different institutions with different strengths. Within those categories, we have awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze prizes for their respective excellence within each category, along with a shortlist of runners-up we believe deserve special recognition. The six categories we have awarded are Top Employers, Best Training Course to Develop Your Skills, Best place to do a Master’s, Best conference to attend, Best place to do a PhD & Best Summer School. By awarding the top institutions and universities through these categories, as well as highlighting the runners-up, we can share a more insightful light on 2017’s most relevant institutions for INOMICS users.
To choose the winners of the 2018 INOMICS Awards, we measured the interest of the INOMICS audience in the job and career opportunities offered by each institution and listed on INOMICS. The criteria took into account how many people read about opportunities at each institution, and how many of these interact with them, based on page views and clicks out to the announcements of each nominee. The INOMICS team would like to commend all the institutions featured in each of our award categories, as well as hundreds of smaller institutions offering niche training opportunities and job offers, for their educational value and research contribution to the field of economics.

Why do a PhD?
If you're an economics student currently doing your undergraduate or Master's degree, you might be considering doing a PhD at some point. The idea of dedicating another three years or more of your life to original research is both exciting and terrifying, and the experience of actually doing it can be both exhilarating and harrowing. Taking the step towards doing a PhD is a big decision, and one that shouldn't be made without the proper research and consideration. Once taken, however, it can be an extremely valuable experience and one that can set you up nicely in the future.

A Critique of Neoliberalism
Few would contest it has been the ideology of our political age. Ever since the 1980s, it has dominated western politics, underpinning governance, influencing culture, and leaving its indelible mark across society. During this time its core tenets were rarely challenged and only its peripheral aspects tweaked. The 2008 financial crash, however, changed this, shaking confidence in an ideology whose name, up until that point, was rarely ever spoken.

Top 10 Best Economics Books
The topic of economics is rich with great writing, and many books have been published over the years which tackle economic issues for a popular audience. Here is our list of ten of the best books in the area of economics. Many of the books here are bestsellers, but we have included a few lesser-known titles that have had an important impact on how the public perceives economics. Some titles, too, are interdisciplinary, combining science, psychology and economics to explain history and human processes; others are narratives of events.
