The Economic Society of Australia (NSW Branch) invites you to ACE 2017 the 46th Australian Conference of Economists. Our theme this year is “Economics for Better Lives” and sessions will consider issues such as inequality and poverty, financial regulation, taxation reform, education reform, the economics of mental health, utility regulation, transport economics, infrastructure, regional trade agreements, international migration flows, international aid and development, the role of behavioral economics the economics of populism, and macroeconomics in a low interest rate world.
This year, there will be a special session on women in economics, which will include a panel discussion about whether gender balance in the economics profession matters.
This is the premier Australian conference for economists in universities, public policy, business and finance. Each year we welcome many overseas economists including this year’s keynote speakers Carol Graham and Kip Viscusi. Generations of young economists and students have presented papers and connected with others at the conference, launching their careers. Our policy panels with distinguished academic and government economists have introduced new ideas and shaped public policy.
We look forward to welcoming you to our conference in Sydney in July 2017.
