Event Details

Michael Spence, winner of the 2001 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences, will speak on Big Shifts in the Global Economy on Monday 15 August. Grattan Institute, in partnership with The University of Western Australia, is delighted to invite you to this exciting public lecture.

Professor Spence has just published The Next Convergence: the Future of Economic Growth, which examines how emerging economies are reshaping the global economy and the international order. Justin Yifu Lin, Senior Vice President and Chief Economist of the World Bank, described it as one of the most profound analyses of the new world economy yet written, while Mohammed El-Erian, author of When Markets Collide, called it the best book he had read on today's epochal economic transformations.



Michael Spence is a Professor of Economics at the Stern School of Business at New York University, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, and was the chairman of the independent Commission on Growth and Development. Winner of the Nobel 2001 Prize in Economic Sciences, he lives in California and Italy.

Grattan Institute

Grattan Institute is based in Melbourne, Australia, and was launched in 2008 with strong support from both the private and public sectors. It aims to focus on the important rather than the urgent. The things that could make a difference to the well-being of Australians over the long run, not distracted by three year electoral cycles. Since launch, Grattan Institute has established a profile as a leader of independent analysis of Australian domestic public policy. It aims to influence both public discussion and senior decision-makers.
