ESAMACE2014 has now concluded – read all about it. Two national awards were given out this year – our congratulations go to:

Eminent Speaker Series – Professor Joseph Stiglitz was in Australia as a guest of the Economic Society and ANU. We hope you had a chance to be part of the program. Work has already started on the 2015 ESS.
La Trobe Uni – You may have read of La Trobe University’s decision to cut its Economics Department by two thirds (see ‘La Trobe to rationalise economics’ ). In response the society has made a number of direct appeals to La Trobe university. The Victorian branch organised a letter expressing concern with signatures of support from attendees of the recent ACE conference and its membership. Our National President has also written to the La Trobe University on behalf of the central council that represents all branches.
Welcome to the National website of the Economic Society of Australia (The Society). The Society is primarily concerned with promoting discussion and debate of economic issues within Australia. It does this by:
- Publishing journals (like the Economic Record and Economic Papers);
- Promoting economic debate in a variety of forums (e.g. the Eminent Speaker Series), and;
- Holding conferences and seminars to encourage economic thought
This website is a resource for members and non-members of the Society alike. It was designed to facilitate communication and/or coordination between branches of the Society and to promote economic thought amongst the general public.
