Measuring up…Alice Lassman (Class 2016) and GIIP metrics on TED talks

We love hearing about our alumnae and their success stories. Alice Lassman, who is currently studying Geography at Durham, did her first TEDx talk this month.

At just 19 she was awarded third place in the Letterone Indigo Prize, competing against seasoned professors, government advisers and economists including Diane Coyle, Professor of Economics at Manchester University and Jonathan Haskel, of the Imperial College Business School (jointly awarded first and second prize). The Indigo Prize, was a one-off economics prize that challenged entrants to consider how to measure economic activity in a 21st century economy.  Building on the success of this incredible achievement, do take a moment to listen to Alice explain her GIIP metric as she argues for its adoption on TED talks.
