Shann Lecture: The End of Normal in Politics and Economics : Shann Memorial Lecture 2019 with Jennifer Hewett (AFR) Other events...
The UWA Business School Economics Department is pleased to invite you to attend the annual Shann Memorial Lecture, The End of Normal in Politics and Economics on Thursday 24 October.

Polarization over Brexit, China’s military belligerence, political deterioration in Hong Kong and lack of US leadership are all contributing to increasing political dysfunction and unpredictability in the global economy. What does this mean for the Australian economy? Join Jennifer Hewett (The Australian Financial Review) for an up-to-date and insightful discussion of these major challenges facing us today.

The annual Shann Memorial Lecture was introduced to honour the memory of the Foundation Professor of Economics at UWA, Edward Owen Giblin Shann. Edward Shann has been regarded as the pioneer of the academic development of economics and traditional Australian economic history and he was a strong advocate of individual intellectual freedom and developing a sense of social responsibilities. He penned several books and essays on the economic history of Australia and was a major influence in formulating financial and fiscal policies in Australia.
Speaker(s) Jennifer Hewett, National Affairs Columnist for The Australian Financial Review
