Join us for a new event which brings together the Economics Society of Australia (NSW) and the Australian Business Economists for an evening of forecasts and fun.

On the evening, you’ll hear from some of NSW’s most respected economists, who will be sharing their forecasts – both economic and other – for 2020. Introduction and welcome by Luci Ellis from the Reserve Bank of Australia. You’ll have a chance to connect with other economists, build your network (effects) and indulge in some game (theory).
