Inclusive Economic Growth 10 Years After The GFC: Ed Balls & Wayne Swan Public Tour

Ten years on from the Global Financial Crisis, with inequality entrenched, trickle-down economics is in search of a replacement.

We want to help start a new conversation about what we can learn from the past and what we must do in the future. As the rise of Donald Trump, the vote for Brexit and the embrace of ‘good debt’ and bank taxes make clear, not even the political right believe in neoliberalism any more.

We are excited to announce that Chifley Research Centre in conjunction with the Australia Institute is bringing one of the key players in the global response to the GFC, Ret. Hon. Ed Balls PC, for a national speaking tour with Australian former Deputy Prime Minister and Treasurer, Hon. Wayne Swan.
