International economics expert Professor Richard Baldwin will present the University of Adelaide’s 2013 Harcourt Lecture on Thursday 31 October.
This is a free, annual lecture hosted by the University’s School of Economics, with this year’s topic: fundamental economic misconceptions.
Professor Baldwin, an internationally-renowned economist, is the professor of international economics at the Graduate Institute of Geneva, a part-time visiting research professor at the University of Oxford, the policy director of Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) and the editor-in-chief of VOX, a leading economics blog.
During this lecture, Professor Baldwin will argue that applying 20th century economic logic to 21st century globalisation has resulted in errors in policy areas ranging from industrial policy and trade governance, to social and educational policy. He will also offer an alternative globalisation narrative.

The Harcourt Professorship was established by generous donations in memory of the 25 years of infectious enthusiasm and distinguished scholarship which Geoff Harcourt gave to the University of Adelaide’s School of Economics. Each year, the Endowment invites a global leader in a field of economics to share their knowledge and experience not only with economic students and staff, but also the broader community.
