Freedom to Choose 2013: The Economics of Government Failure
Freedom to Choose is an annual one-day economics conference devoted to considering the degree to which policy makers should pursue free-market policies. The 2013 Conference has the sub-theme of "The Economics of Government Failure". The speakers will consider how and why the costs of government failure can be substantial. Government intervention to resolve market failures may often fail to achieve an efficient allocation of resources. Speakers will make reference to Australian and international cases where the diagnosis of market failure may be accurate, but the recommendations and policies designed to correct such failures are inappropriate. Speakers will examine how both microeconomic and macroeconomic policies of various kinds may actually produce unintended, negative results and considerable resource wastage. The conference is specifically designed for undergraduate, honours and postgraduate students, but all interested parties are welcome. Forums will also be provided at the conference in which students can interact with established economists to discuss the wisdom of pursuing honours and postgraduate qualifications in the discipline of economics, as well as careers in economics generally.
