ESA (ACT) First Friday Economics
The Research School of Economics at the ANU and the ACT Branch of the Economic Society of Australia wish to invite you to the April edition of First Friday Economics (FFE). FFE is an exciting initiative aimed at enriching the professional and social lives of Canberra economists. We aim to provide a congenial setting, on the first Friday of every month, to allow the interaction of mainly young Canberra economists, with a major Canberra economist invited to give a short address. Finger food and drinks provided free of charge.
For the April event, we are pleased to have Jenny Wilkinson, the head of the Parliamentary Budget Office (PBO), speaking on the public policy debates she has been involved in. The PBO is responsible for providing independent and non-partisan budget and fiscal analysis services to all parliamentarians, including providing confidential costings of proposed policies on request. Over her career, Ms Wilkinson has worked across a wide range of public policy areas in the Commonwealth Treasury, the Department of Climate Change, the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet and the Reserve Bank of Australia.
Hot finger foods, wine, beer, and non-alcoholic drinks will be served
