Some Simple Extensions to Basic Macroeconomics with Dr Paul Blacklow
From: Thursday June 16, 2022, 7:00 pm
To: Thursday June 16, 2022, 8:00 pm
Please join the Tasmanian Branch of the Economic Society via Zoom in hearing Paul present some relatively simple ideas on how to extend basic macroeconomics. There will also be time to discuss your own suggestions on how better to explain macroeconomics.
Paul Blacklow is the current Tasmanian branch president of the Economics Society of Australia and has been a lecturer at the University of Tasmania (UTAS) for over 20 years. He is chairing the organising committee for the Australian Conference of Economists to be held in Hobart, July 10-13 this year. See www.ace2022.org.au for more details.
In addition to his research work and microeconomic teaching for the past couple of years, Paul has been teaching first-year macroeconomics at UTAS. Paul has found some of the models used in teaching lacking. In particular, they do not connect the price of financial assets to the money market, the real economy and inflation. In addition, ever since his first aborted PhD topic, Paul has long pondered how the distribution of income can affect the macroeconomy and thinks he has an answer.
