WEN Event


From: Thursday April 5, 2018, 7:30 am

To: Thursday April 5, 2018, 8:45 am

The Women in Economics Network (WEN) invite you to a breakfast event with special guest speaker, Richard Yetsenga, Chief Economist of ANZ. The event will be chaired and facilitated by Dr Jana Matthews, Director of the Australian Centre for Business Growth at UniSA.

The global economy has recovered, and Australia has participated. But this upswing is unlike any other. Wage growth and business investment remain sub-par. The US yield curve has already flattened and household saving rates are low. Credit growth has been constrained by more appropriate regulatory architecture, while unsettling politics persist and technology reshapes work and play. Richard will discuss which of these influences are temporary and which permanent, and how he expects the upswing to evolve.
