Awards

The Economic Society of Australia offers five awards at the national level; these are the Distinguished Fellow Award, The Honorary Fellow Award, the Young Economist Award, the Distinguished Public Policy Fellow Award and from 2017 the Trevor Swan Memorial Award.

The Distinguished Fellow Award was created in 1985 to honour distinguished Australian economists for their contribution to the development of economics. The Honorary Fellow Award was created in 2005 to honour members of the Society for their significant contribution to the Society. The Young Economist Award was created in 2006 to honour Australian economists under the age of forty who are deemed to have made a significant contribution to economic thought and knowledge. The Distinguished Public Policy Fellow Award has been introduced in 2014 to honour distinguished Australian economists for their contribution to public debate on policy issues.

The Trevor Swan Memorial Prize

The name of the prize recognises Trevor Swan – widely regarded as one of the finest Australian economists to have had distinguished careers in both government and academia. Trevor Swan’s article from 1956: “Economic growth and capital accumulation”. Economic Record 32 (2), pp.334–361, is one of the most cited articles in the history of economics (it remains the most cited article published in The Economic Record).
