FUTURE ECONOMISTS AND THE ROLE OF THE PhD CONFERENCE

Kenneth Clements () and Robert Gregory ()

No 20-23, Economics Discussion / Working Papers from The University of Western Australia, Department of Economics

Abstract: The PhD Conference in Economics and Business was a unique Australian innovation when it commenced in the late 1980s. With the high-quality feedback from discussants, the conference was a productive special event, even horizon-broadening for some students. The conference is now a partnership between six universities and has involved almost 900 students from many universities. This paper places the conference in a broader context and highlights some of the stars by identifying 54 student-presenters now full professors.
