Enjoy a drink while our panellists tackle the big questions: What are the economic forecasts (and how does Treasury produce them)? Will the budget finally get to surplus and does it matter? How big are the pre-election giveaways? And what will be the impact of the budget on young people and women?

We look forward to seeing you for a fascinating discussion.

Professional Development Seminar on Gender Lensing with Miranda Stewart and Janine Dixon

Event Type: ESA Event

Date: Thursday Mar 28, 2019, 12:30 pm

March's Professional Development seminar will be on Gender Lensing and presented by Professor Miranda Stewart and Associate Professor Janine Dixon. Following the success of WEN's Gender Lensing Masterclass at the recent Australian Gender Economics Workshop, this seminar will provide a "sampler" of what this type of analysis is about.

The objective of this seminar is to provide a brief demonstration of an applied analysis of how budgetary and other economic policy settings can be gender-patterned in their impacts and incentive effects. It aims to whet the appetite for more extensive learning about the Gender Lensing approach which would equip professional economists with the skills and insights to undertake a gender-sensitive evaluation of policy settings.

Policy in the Pub: Economic Regulation of Airports

Event Type: ESA Event

Date: Wednesday Mar 20, 2019, 5:30 pm

Airport regulation is a contested policy area, with airlines calling for changes to increase their bargaining power in negotiations with airports. The Productivity Commission’s draft report on the economic regulation of airports found that Australian airports are investing and operating efficiently by world standards, and existing airport regulation benefits the community. However, reforms are needed to enable greater scrutiny of airport performance in specific areas of concern. This talk will explain the Commission’s draft findings and recommendations, including why it thinks you’re not paying too much to park at the airport!

Join us for Policy in the Pub to hear from Stephen King from the Productivity Commission on the Economic Regulation of Airports.

Professional Development Seminar: David Johnston on Valuing Intangibles using Subjective Wellbeing Data - The Case of Violent Crime

Event Type: ESA Event

Date: Thursday Nov 29, 2018, 12:30 pm

Valuing Intangibles using Subjective Wellbeing Data - The Case of Violent Crime

Valuing public amenities, pain and suffering, and other non-market goods is a common but challenging task faced by applied economists. Existing methods include inferring shadow prices from market data, and contingent valuation surveys in which people are asked directly about their willingness to pay. This presentation discusses a complementary approach based on the use of subjected wellbeing data, and demonstrates its use by estimating the costs of violent crime victimisation in Australia. The total cost of violent crime for victims includes direct costs, such as lost wages, medical care costs and property damage, and intangible and potentially long-term costs associated with pain, psychological distress, and decreases in quality of life. We estimate that the amount of monetary compensation required by victims to offset their loss of wellbeing is $88,000 for the average victim, with the amount being greater for females ($102,000) than males ($79,000).
