Featuring Professor John Freebairn of Melbourne University
We are delighted to announce one of Australia’s most pre-eminent economists, Professor John Freebairn, will be guest speaker at this year’s Henry George Commemorative Dinner. With the state election nearing, he will be speaking on the reforms Victoria needs to keep on the move.
And yes, you read correctly, this event has been part of Melbourne’s economic and political calender since 1891.
Professor Freebairn holds the Ritchie Chair in Economics at the University of Melbourne, and has had a distinguished career in applied microeconomics and economic policy analysis. You can read some of his recent analysis here and here. We look forward to hearing the Professor’s views as our annual dinner continues the high standard set by Saul Eslake and Leith van Onselen.
Tickets $30, includes a light meal and lecture.
Wednesday September 3rd from 6 pm
Royal Society of Victoria – Map, 8 Latrobe St, Melbourne.
