Could the Global Financial Crisis happen again?

20 June 2014

Monday 30th June.

Where ever we live, the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) has influenced us, from finding it more difficult to land our preferred graduate job to deep cuts in government spending due to falling revenue. It led to changes in economic policies designed to address the causes of the GFC. Were these changes justified? Were they appropriate? Will they prevent a similar economic shock in the future?

Nobel Laureate Professor Joseph Stiglitz will address questions such as these in his lecture for this year’s Crawford School Oration. One of the world’s leading economics, Joseph Stiglitz was awarded the Nobel Prize in economics in 2001. He was also a lead author of the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change, which shared the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007.

The oration will be held at Llewellyn Hall, ANU School of Music, from 5:30 to 6:45 pm on Monday the 30th of June.
