Professional learning on economic policy in a low inflation world

The John Curtin Institute of Public Policy (JCIPP) often provides events that are useful Professional Learning for teachers of senior secondary Economics.

I attended the recent presentation by Harry Bloch on Joseph Schumpeter's economic growth theory. It was interesting to hear the links in the theory between innovation, entrepreneurs and economic growth. Harry emphasised the impacts of disruptive technologies and the link to prices.

The next presentation by Dr Herve Le Bihan (economist at the Banque de France and Visiting Research Fellow at the Curtin Business School) regarding the low inflation world in advanced economies also promises to be very interesting for teachers of Economics. This free Curtin Corner event is on 9 March at 4.00-5.00 pm in the Council Chambers on the Bentley Campus. There is even free parking after 3.30 pm in the closest parking area on Fridays.
