In 2006 the prestigious ABC Boyer Lectures will be undertaken by Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia, Ian Macfarlane, who will share his insights into Australia's economy.
'The Search For Stability' is about how Australia has struggled to find a means of ensuring a stable growth path for the economy. We thought we had it, we lost it disastrously, we half regained it, then we fully regained it. But is it permanent or is there a new set of challenges waiting to trap us? The lectures will cover: The Golden Age, From Golden Age to Stagflation, Reform and Deregulation, The Recession of 1990 and its Legacy, The Long Expansion and Challenges for the Future. Ian Macfarlane is in a unique position to comment on Australia's economy - and what he has to say might just surprise you!
