Jamil's Economics Enthusiasm

  • Jamil's Economics Enthusiasm


    It was a bright sunny day when Jamil setup his laptop in his room. He was curious to check if his Economics teacher assigned him any homework. In the COVID pandemic, online classes and digital homework were the norm of education for Jamil. He was a typical high school student in Dhaka, Bangladesh. He was an O'level student at Maple leaf International school and his Economics exam was coming up in two months. He liked business, commerce and economics in general and wanted to have a career in finance and banking. Just like any other students, his goal was to get an A in his O'levels Economics. 

    Jamil finally started his laptop, had a sip of milk, and quickly logged into to his school's e-mail account. As soon as he opened his e-mail, he received the following picture from his Economics teacher. Looked like he had some research to do!

    The winner of this quiz is: 

    Kanta Akter (Winner, $5)

    Kanta's answer was good because it highlighted how women's job participation in Bangladesh significantly improved, but she also emphasized the fact that women also do not get paid equally as men for the same work. So her answer covered all the the angles about this issue. The good and the bad!


    The runner up of this quiz is: 

    Zarin Sadaf Snigdha (Runner-up, $3)

    The good part of Zarin's answer was the emphasis on microfinances and how NGO's, BRAC were helping women in this regard. She highlighted the fact that women still have a long way to go in Bangladesh! So that pretty much highlighted everything in a nutshell.
