The State of Economics - ONLINE ONLY

Event Type: ESA Event

Date: Tuesday May 28, 2024, 12:00 pm

From: Central Council

There has been a consequential fall in the size and diversity of the economics student population in Australia. One approach to looking at the economics discipline in a structured way is to ask the following questions. Who studies economics? What is the pipeline of potential economics graduates? How are economic skills rewarded by the labour market? And what is the level of economic literacy in the community? Some high-level answers to these questions are provided in a summary of the current ‘state of economics’.

Event Type: ESA Event

Date: Wednesday Nov 1, 2023, 12:00 pm

Economists have long been interested in public policy and other real-world impact, but in recent years the advent of more accessible data, the proliferation of applied microeconomic methods for causal influence, and the growth of behavioral economics and “Nudge” units have combined to expand opportunities for “evidence-based” policy-making.  While this movement is large and diverse, one frequent mechanism for such policy-making is a partnership between academic researchers and industry, government and/or non-profit leaders.
