ABE presents an event for high school students in years 10, 11 and 12. We begin with a senior Reserve Bank official and an update on current issues. We introduce four (relatively) youthful economists for a panel session about economics in the real world and a discussion about schooling and career with a focus on how the study of economics has been critical to their career success. We conclude with discussion, an open q+a session. There is no charge for participation.
