Top Economists see no prolonged high inflation, no rate hike next year (Q1)

Poll 51

Our panellists were asked whether rate hikes would be necessitated in the United States, Britain and Australia.

Despite appearances – especially in the United States – the era of high inflation isn’t set for a comeback in the view of Australia’s leading economists, and most see no need for the Reserve Bank to lift interest rates next year.

Question 1

Climate Action: What do Economists think? - ONLINE ONLY

Event Type: ESA Event

Date: Monday Dec 6, 2021, 12:00 pm

From: Central Council

Climate change is arguably one of the most important and complicated economic and public policy challenges facing our generation. As NASA says, one of the complexities of climate change is that it is a global problem, felt on local scales.  The IPCC 2021 climate change report and the recent UN 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26) has served to intensify the policy debate here in Australia. In light of this, our National Women in Economics (WEN) committee has gathered together four female thought leaders and expert researchers to present their research and insights and engage in a panel discussion.  Timing of this event is AEDT (timezone converter)
