The Great Economists - Can their ideas can help us today?

Smith, Ricardo, Marx, Marshall, Hayek & Keynes. Just a few of the illustrious names from the history of economics but what can the ideas of history's greatest economists tell us about the most important issues of our time?

Join us for October's Policy in the Pub to hear from Associate Professor Alex Millmow from Federation University and President of the History of Thought Society of Australia (HETSA) who will discuss what (if anything) we can learn from the Great Economists.

The topic for this talk comes from a recent book by Linda Yueh "The Great Economists: How their ideas can help us today" and will include a reflection and commentary on the issues it raises.
