In the lead up to the 2016 Australian federal election we asked the Economic Society of Australia's National Economic Panel (NEP) for their opinion on this proposition:
'Australia will receive a bigger economic growth dividend in the long-run by spending on education than offering an equivalent amount of money on a tax cut to business.'

Cost Benefit Analysis in contemporary project evaluation – a facilitated discussion between academics, practioners and public policy advisors
The use of cost-benefit analysis (CBA) has become an important component of any business case for major infrastructure expenditure in Australia and, in some cases, is mandated by legislation.
This event aims to identify the key challenges in the contemporary use of CBA in the evaluation of major projects. The format will involve a brief presentation from the perspective of a public policy advisor, followed by a facilitated discussion between three main sectors involved in CBA in Australia – academics; professional economics consultants; and public sector policy advisors.
The aim of the discussion is to build networks across those active in CBA in Queensland, identify common ground and issues for further analysis and research, as well as possible themes for future events.
The session will be followed by drinks and savouries.
There is no charge for the event but prior registration is required and places are limited.
