March Monthly Luncheon 2014 with Professor Ross Garnaut AO
The Graduate Union Of The University Of Melbourne Inc
Luncheon, Boom, Prof Ross Garnaut
Professor Ross Garnaut AO, presents 'How are we managing the dog days?' for our March Monthly Luncheon.
Professor Ross Garnaut (AO) is a Vice-Chancellor’s Fellow and is currently a Professorial Research Fellow at The University of Melbourne.
He is the author of numerous publications on international economics, public finance and economic development, particularly in relation to East Asia and the Southwest Pacific and has also had longstanding and successful roles as policy advisor, diplomat and businessman. He was the Senior Economic Adviser to Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke (1983-1985) and subsequently served as the Australian Ambassador to China (1985-1988).
Professor Garnaut has presented the Garnaut Climate Change Review to the Australian Prime Minister, examining the impact of climate change on the Australian economy and providing potential medium to long-term policies to ameliorate these.
Professor Garnaut’s latest book, Dog Days: Australia After the Boom, describes how the immediate spending of revenues from the early twenty first century China boom pushed Australian incomes, consumption and real exchange rate above anything previously known. The passing of the boom leaves Australia facing great challenges to maintain high levels of employment and to preserve as much as possible of our recently elevated standard of living. We need a new reform era, built on shared restraint and acceptance of private adjustment in the public interest. This is hard in the political culture of the twenty first century, where corporate and other interests are accustomed to getting the policy they want. How we are going so far in facing up to the challenge will be the topic of discussion for the March Monthly Luncheon.
