Economic system innovations have had a profound impact on our lives, from the invention of banking in the middle ages to the organisations established by the United Nations post-WWII. However, their intangible nature means that people often don’t value these changes as much as physical inventions.

Please join us for the launch of Economic Innovations: Creating New Instruments to Improve Economic Life, a book by Professor Beth Webster and Dr Bill Scales AO.

In a conversation with iconic broadcaster Mr Jon Faine AM, this session will explore the struggles taken to implement these new ways of organising economic life. Chaired by Associate Professor Russell Thomson.

Light refreshments will follow. RSVP is essential.

This event will also be live streamed. Register to attend online.
