What we'll do

Join us for a presentation by Emeritus Professor Bill Mitchell on the economic concept of what a "buffer stock" is and how it relates to both unemployment and price stability. We will discuss the currently accepted doctrine of NAIRU and how it is inferior to NAIBER (some may know this as the "Federal Job Guarantee") for maintaining full employment and price stability.

Professor Bill Mitchell holds the Chair in Economics and is the Director of the Centre of Full Employment and Equity (CofFEE), an official research centre at the University of Newcastle. He is also on the board of CofFEE-Europe, which is a sister centre established at the University of Maastricht, The Netherlands. He has written extensively in the fields of macroeconomics, econometrics and public policy.

There is a limit of 56 seats, so be sure to reserve your place!
