Listen to a Nobel laureate economist soon

It is a challenging time to listen live but Joe is in my opinion worth it (and it's free) - so I have registered to the second webinar below for 4am (WST) on Thursday - perhaps a walk afterwards???

Otherwise, if you do register and stay asleep all is OK as the Australia Institute will email a recording of the webinar will to you - perhaps listen to it over breakfast or on your 6am pre-work walk.

Get onboard and if you know other Economics teachers who will be interested please let them ASAP so they too can register and get to listen to a Nobel Prize winner.

Here are the details from the Australia Institute: The Australia Institute announced that "at 6am on Thursday, April 30, we will be joined by Nobel prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz for a discussion with former deputy prime minister and treasurer Wayne Swan to explore the issue of inequality in this pandemic as well as progressive solutions to the economic crisis." The Australia Institute’s **Special International Webinar** Professor Joseph Stiglitz with Wayne Swan Inequality in a Pandemic – Progressive Solutions to the Economic Crisis 6am AEST Thursday, April 30 (4pm Wednesday New York time) FREE, registration essential
