The Economic Society of Australia, Victoria Branch, invites you to the upcoming Policy at the Pub event, with Alex Millmow presenting on his latest book "The Gypsy Economist: The Life and Times of Colin Clark". The book offers the first intellectual biography of Clark, an economist whose career was punctuated by a number of firsts, including being one of the first distinguished fellows of the Economics Society of Australia and the first economist Alex ever had the pleasure of meeting, and who wandered through the fields of applied economics in much the same way as he rambled through the English countryside and the Australian bush. This is an excellent opportunity to hear about and discuss the life of one of Australia’s most overlooked economists.
The event will run as an online-only webinar and is open to ESA members and non-members alike.
