Young Economist SA Event - Economic growth: Is diversification the key?

Event Type: ESA Event

Date: Wednesday May 25, 2016, 5:30 pm

From: South Australia Branch

Dear ESA members and Associates,

Tired of sitting through another PowerPoint presentation? Would you prefer an interactive discussion? Young Economists SA invites you to attend a New Event - "Economic growth : Is diversification the key?" on Wednesday 25 May 2016.

On the event you can look forward to this lively confabulation — where everyone will have the opportunity to consider the challenges of economic growth, question wisdom (conventional or otherwise) and possible answers. In a room full of economists we’re bound to get some broad and divergent views!

Without being bound by the constraints of the political imperatives of the day, clamorous complaints and demands or any other limiting considerations, come and free (but do not empty) your minds and engage with your colleagues and peers to create your grand economic vision (at least for one night)!

The facilitators do not claim to have any particular expertise on the topic but they are likely to be tricky, difficult, argumentative and generally questionable as they draw on the collective wisdom of those assembled. Bring your views and ideas and be prepared to be challenged.

The Chatham House Rule will apply. 
https://www.chathamhouse.org/about/chatham-house-rule

Come and join us for this event on:

Wednesday, 25 May, 2016 at 5:30 pm (concluding at 7:30 pm)
Venue: Amber Lounge, Ambassador Hotel, 107 King William St. (Drinks and canapés will be provided). No cost for Economic Society members and $20 for non-members.

RSVP to admin@esasa.org.au or register via http://esasa.org.au/book-event/ by 23 May 2016.


With kind regards,
