Welcome to the Victorian Branch of the Economic Society of Australia
The Victorian Branch of the Economic Society of Australia was formed in 1925. As such the Society is one of the oldest professional associations in Australia, and the Victorian Branch one of the largest branches of the organization. The Economic Society of Australia is affiliated with the International Economics Association.
The Society aims to:
- encourage informed public debate and the application of economics to Australia’s policy and industry issues
- promote the study and teaching of economics and its application in Australia
- assist in the training and professional development of economists and related professions.
To achieve these goals the Society has a long and rich history of activities catering both to our members and to the community more broadly. We welcome membership to anyone interested in contemporary economic issues and debate and engaging with the economics community in Victoria.
