Economics Competition

My first experience ever competing in the sector of Economics was the Ma-Chung Economics Competition Essay 2022 with the theme of “Be Intellectual and Professional Through Economics”. I chose the sub-topic of technology because I learned that it is one of the most contributing factors of how an economy and country can develop. Thus, my essay topic is how we can sustain an economy’s well-being by utilizing a solar-wind hybrid engine. 

My idea of the solar-wind hybrid engine came up when I thought about the Covid-19 pandemic and climate change and how they have disturbed several economic activities. Considering the judges’ feedback after I presented my essay, I realized the relationship between this hybrid technology and its real-world context is still debatable because my hypothesis is still yet to be proved. I have been wanting to write something about how we must view economics and the environment together as a whole because I believe that what the world needs now is a solution that could create a mutual relationship between these two fields of study. 

I would like to thank Ms Ika for offering me the opportunity to participate in it; Pak Budhi and Pak Brian for assisting me in terms of my arguments and solution; Pak Fery and Ms Santi for helping me revise my grammar and essay structure; and my loved ones for supporting me throughout the journey. I hope that my essay is only the first step towards further development until we get to witness how to realistically sustain an economy without having to ruin our homeland.
