Media Wrap: Melbourne Economic Forum
The second Melbourne Economic Forum was hosted at the University of Melbourne yesterday.
The Melbourne Economic Forum brings together economic policy thinkers from the University of Melbourne and Victoria University, and public and private institutions to encourage sound Australian government policy making.
This second forum focused on financial reform and it featured presentations by Professor Kevin Davis from the University of Melbourne and Janine Dixon of Victoria University along with comments by RBA Governor Glenn Stevens (pictured), Dr Nicholas Gruen, Dr Peter Johnson and Professor Helen Sullivan.
Chaired by Professor Ross Garnaut the forum received significant media focus with the Australian Financial Review covering a proposal by the Dean of the Faculty of Business and Economics, Professor Paul Kofman and his colleague Carsten Murawski to create a new model for Australia’s banking sector, while an op-ed by Victoria University Professor Rod Maddock on the super funds industry was also published.
