The Economic Society of Australia - Victoria Branch cordially invites you to our
END OF YEAR EVENT AND AGM
The Economic Society is looking forward to getting together in person, and promoting connection among our members and those interested in contemporary economic issues and debate.
Please join us as we hear from our guest speaker, Greg Jericho.
Greg Jericho has had the unique career of going from blogger criticizing the media to himself a prominent member of the media and then onto the role of policy director and Chief Economist at The Australia Institute. His address will cover the changing nature of economics reporting over the past 15 years, and how he played a role bringing graphs into common usage among economic journalists. He will also discuss how The Australia Institute uses its research to drive policy debates on issue such as the Stage 3 tax cuts, climate policy and industrial relations.
