This masterclass will introduce The Australia Institute and the work we do. Executive Director Ben Oquist will discuss what it is to be a think tank and how that can influence the political debate.
Richard Denniss, our Chief Economist, will present on how to decode political spin and economic nonsense, and unpack economics for progressive advocacy.
Staff from the Institute will discuss how to use research to push public debate beyond the simplistic question of whether markets or governments have all the answers.
Following the class a short Q&A section will be hosted by our Deputy Director, Ebony Bennett.
A light lunch is included.
