On Monday, Prince Philipp and Prince Michael attended the 8th Vernon Smith Prize at the European Center of Austrian Economics Foundation (ECAEF). The topic for this year's event was "Is Edward Snowden a hero or a villain?" The first prize went to Daniel Issing (shown second from the left, in the photo above) for his economic treatment of the question, ultimately viewing Snowden in a positive light. Demelza Hays from the US (center) and Mats Ekman from Finland (second from the right) won second and third prize, respectively.
