Australian Conference of Economists 08

Each year the Economic Society of Australia hosts the premier conference of this type in Australia.  Last year the conference was held in gorgeous Hobart, Tasmania and in 2006 as the fastest growing metropolis, Perth Western Australia.  This year it's Queensland's time to host the conference at the ever vibrant Gold Coast.  Even if you are coming to the conference to hear about the latest in economic thought, we hope you can stay a while and enjoy the best the coast can offer.

The Organising Committee for this conference is:

James Dick
Khorshed Alam (Programme Chair)
