About this event

For Australians, the end of the Covid-19 lockdown is in sight, and a return to some semblance of normalcy is on the horizon. As our focus shifts from the virus and its immediate impact to social recovery, the economy will take centre stage. The government has a once in a lifetime opportunity to rebuild our economy, and they are not short of advice. Which direction will they chose? Is it time for ambitious market reforms, or to maintain the social safety net that has won them so many new fans? Is there a chance of a fairer nation, or are we looking down the barrel of post-pandemic austerity?

Join a panel of our most interesting economists and commentators, Joshua Gans, Richard Holden, Jennifer Hewett and Judith Sloan to tackle the big questions we need to answer if we are to make the best economic recovery that we can.

A link to the livestream of this event will be sent to registered guests the day before the event.

Presenters: Professor Richard Holden, UNSW Business School, Professor Joshua Gans, University of Toronto, Judith Sloan, Jennifer Hewett (chair)
