Event Type: ESA Event

Date: Tuesday May 16, 2023, 3:30 pm

From: Western Australia

In Australia economics was once a popular subject choice in school. This is no longer the case, in large part because of a preference for business studies. The latter is considered easier to teach (fewer concepts, more resources). There is also a perception that if offers employment opportunities.

Date: Friday May 5, 2023, 5:30 pm

From: Australian Capital Territory

Dr Jeff Bennett , Environmental Markets: Paradigms, Potential and Pitfalls

Markets can be highly advantageous in securing improved efficiency in environmental resource allocations. They have become increasingly popular policy instruments, even amongst environmentalists. However, ignoring the significance of transaction costs and the influence of rent seekers in their design and implementation can de-rail environmental markets. 

First Friday Economics (FFE) is an exciting initiative aimed at enriching the professional and social lives of Canberra economists. We aim to provide a congenial setting, on the first Friday of every month, to allow the interaction of mainly young Canberra economists, with a major Canberra economist invited to give a short address. Refreshments are provided free of charge. Please register one week in advance to assist with catering.
