ESA (ACT) First Friday Economics 
May 2019
David Kalisch 

The ACT Branch of the Economic Society of Australia and the Research School of Economics at the ANU wish to invite you to the May 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 May event, we are pleased to have David Kalisch, the head of the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). David will speak on “measurement innovations and challenges”, highlighting important developments and considering the role of ABS in the 21st century information environment.  Over his career, Mr Kalisch has worked in a range of high profile positions, including as the Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, a Commissioner at the Productivity Commission and a Deputy Secretary in the Commonwealth Department of Health and two appointments at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in Paris.

Finger food and drinks will be served
