The School of Economics was proud to present the 2019 Fisher Lecture presented by Professor Siwan Anderson on Thursday 5 September, 2019.

The School of Economics was very pleased to welcome Professor Siwan Anderson from the Vancouver School of Economics at the University of British Columbia in Canada. Professor Anderson is a development economist and much of her research focuses on women in poor countries. She delivered the annual Fisher Lecture entitled “Missing Women” to a diverse audience and answered some interesting questions after the lecture.   Professor Anderson is a senior fellow of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR), the Bureau for Research and Economic Analysis of Development (BREAD), Theoretical Research in Development Economics (ThReD), and the Center for Effective Global Action (CEGA) at the University of California Berkeley.  View the video here.

The School of Economics was very pleased to host a large contingent of Year 12 students from across the state to a keynote address given by Dr Luci Ellis, the Assistant Governor (Economic) of the Reserve Bank of Australia. The title of her address was Monetary Policy and Current Economic Conditions. This was followed by a lively question and answer session in which Ms Ellis was very generous of her time and extended her session to answer all the students’ questions.

Prior to the keynote speech, a panel of past and current Economics students also gave their time for a question and answer session which focused on why they chose Economics as their career path and where it has taken them. Panelists highlighted the power of economics in contributing to public policy and addressing contemporary global issues. They also discussed how an Economics degree can be combined with other degrees (to receive a double degree), the mobility of an economics career, and importance of women in economics.

The school would like to thank the Economic Teachers Society of South Australia for their organisation of the event, the Reserve Bank of Australia and Dr Luci Ellis for her generous support towards promoting the study of economics in South Australia.
