Women’s under-representation in economics: Exploring the “confidence gap”

Engaged Egalitarianism: Why the Australian Recovery Must Prioritise Openness

The pandemic years have seen a collapse in migration, tourism and offshore investment. As the nation recovers, these traditional sources of economic growth will be vital to national prosperity. Yet it is vital to ensure that the gains from openness are broadly shared across the community. This approach, which I describe as ‘engaged egalitarianism’ will be vital to ensuring openness delivers fairness, as well as to avoiding the political backlash against open markets that might otherwise ensue.  Join us for this in-person event (venue to be confirmed).

Policy in the Pub: Public Transport Pricing - ONLINE ONLY

Event Type: ESA Event

Date: Wednesday Mar 23, 2022, 5:30 pm

In cities around the world, the COVID-19 pandemic put the brakes on public transport. Buses, trains and light rail cars — once teaming with commuters — ran empty for much of 2020 and 2021. They have continued to run below capacity post-lockdown, thanks to renewed preferences for car travel and the rise of work-from-home practices. In the longer term, as urban populations grow, public transport will no doubt return to higher patronage — and to familiar capacity constraints.

Date: Monday Dec 6, 2021, 12:00 pm

From: Central Council

Climate change is arguably one of the most important and complicated economic and public policy challenges facing our generation. As NASA says, one of the complexities of climate change is that it is a global problem, felt on local scales.  The IPCC 2021 climate change report and the recent UN 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26) has served to intensify the policy debate here in Australia. In light of this, our National Women in Economics (WEN) committee has gathered together four female thought leaders and expert researchers to present their research and insights and engage in a panel discussion.  Timing of this event is AEDT (timezone converter)
