Samuel Wilson, a junior majoring in Conflict Analysis and Resolution at Mason Korea, recently won the Commendation Award for the 17th Economic Essay Contest hosted by The Korea Times and sponsored by Woori Bank. He is officially the first Mason Korea student to win an essay award by The Korea Times.
The contest was open to university students who were asked to write on one of two subjects: "What are your suggestions for co-prosperity between people and AI?" or "Do you agree with the idea of institutionalizing a basic income system?"
Wilson wrote an article titled Korea to be less innovative with universal basic income, which was published in the Finance section of The Korea Times last week.
The Korea Times invited the six winners to an awards ceremony held at the Lotte Hotel Seoul last week where Korea Times President-Publisher Oh Young-jin and Woori Bank Executive Vice President Hwang Kyu-mok presented each winner with a cash prize and plaque.
