The Economic Society of Australia (Victoria) runs a fortnightly series of professional development seminars.
They are designed
- to help you keep up to date with economics
- to broaden you knowledge of economic issues
- to deepen your knowledge of economics.
Some highlights include Jeff Borland talking about Microeconomic Reform, Lata Gangadharan talking about her work on Dishonesty, and Liam Lenten talking about How to Stop Tanking in the AFL.
I will kick off the series by talking about what I expect to see in the Murray Inquiry into Financial Services.
Please feel free to come along. The sessions are very informal, only take an hour, and give you a chance to ask questions and think about economic issues in a friendly environment.
Our plan is to offer seminars fortnightly, to inform you each seminar week of the current topic as well as the longer schedule.

Seminar #1 Rod Maddock "What I expect from the Murray Inquiry into the financial system"
Financial system inquiries are a big deal, they happen infrequently and can have a major influence on the structure of the economy. Following on the the shadow of the global financial crisis, and with questions being asked about the whole move towards financial globalisation, Murray has the opportunity to re-shape our financial system. Issues such as our dependence on offshore capital, the extent to which we align with global regulation, the role of superannuation in the financial system, are of critical importance.
