Deregulation and reform of the electricity market in Australia: Lessons for Japan?

Event Type: ESA Event

Date: Tuesday May 15, 2018, 6:00 pm

From: South Australia

The Japanese Government began to reform the Japanese electricity market in 2016, some 25 years after Paul Keating kicked off Australia’s energy reform. The Australian process opened up generation, network and retail from being a purely government operated sector. This saw an increase in private investment and the integration of State-based grids.

The speaker Felix Karmel examines the various parts of the Australian Energy sector. It looks at the history of the National Electricity Market and how the reform process has proceeded. From this five lessons from the Australian experience are drawn.

Women in Economics Network: Rediscovering the link between public policy and the economics of innovation

Event Type: ESA Event

Date: Monday Apr 30, 2018, 5:30 pm

From: Victoria

 Politicians always say they’re on the side of wealth creators. But who are Australia's real wealth creators, and does government do a good enough job of incentivising them? In a provocative new book, Marianna Mazzucato - last year's Leontief Prize winner and the inaugural Director of the Institute for Innovation Public Purpose at UCL - argues that today's economists and policy makers need a clearer understanding of the distinction between activities that genuinely add to the productive capacity of our economy and those that merely siphon off economic rents.

 Mazzucato’s work touches on important questions for policy makers: how much do the innovations of big technology and drug companies rely on government-funded discoveries? What risks does outsourcing government services to the lowest bidder create and who bears them?

Joining us to celebrate the launch of this new title will be Innovation and Science Australia board member and Director and Dandolo partners, Dr Bronte Adams, and Marion Terrill of the Grattan Institute, and Professor Anne-Laure Mention - Director of RMIT Global Business Innovation Enabling Capability Platform and Founding Editor of the Journal of Innovation Management.

This conversation will be moderated by Jess Young, Director at Deloitte Access Economics

Please join us for what will be a fascinating discussion of one of the most important debates in economics.
