GEN 2022 Annual Conference

12 August 2022
GEN 2022 Annual Conference

How do we bravely expand our thinking and analysis to develop the right policies in a complex world? How does economics need to change to bring the full argument to the table?

The aim of the 2022 GEN conference is for attendees to leave with a greater ability to analyse our economy in different, multiple ways and use new tools to evaluate policy and its impacts on different people. This year, the conference focuses on new economic thinking and economic inclusion. This reflects the stronger calls from some research institutes for mainstream economics to modernise. 

Dr Philip Stevens, Economics & Research Director with the New Zealand Productivity Commission, will present on the Commission's work on immigration and addressing intergenerational disadvantage in New Zealand.
