Essay Contest: What should be measured?

Prize money of $3,500 is up for grabs from the Fraser Institute.

Entries can be in one of two formats: An essay of 500-600 words, or a one minute video essay uploaded online. Entries must cover the following points:

  1. A clear thesis statement describing what issue you think should be measured;
  2. Why, using facts and a logical argument, the issue should be measured; and
  3. How you would measure it, if you had sufficient resources and access to relevant data.
