Eminent Speakers

The Eminent Speaker Series provides a unique opportunity for you to hear from the world’s leading economists in an open forum.  The Economic Society of Australia was founded in 1925, making it one of the oldest professional associations in Australia. One of the main objectives of the society is to encourage the teaching, study and application of economics and related disciplines in Australia and to encourage the research and public debate of economic questions. To meet this objective, the Economic Society of Australia launched the Eminent Speaker Series in 2010.
