About the Giblin Lecture

The Giblin Lecture is a partnership between the University of Tasmania and the Economics Society of Australia – Tasmania Branch. It is named for the eminent Australian economist, Lyndhurst Falkiner Giblin, who was born and died in Hobart.

Giblin and colleagues were pivotal in the shaping of economic thought and policymaking in Australia, and helped to bridge the gap between academic economics and public policy in Australia. The annual Giblin lecture is presented in this tradition.

Presented in partnership with the Economic Society of Australia - Tasmania Branch.
