Reserve Bank of Australia - Topical Talk 

The Reserve Bank of Australia has now opened registrations for a new Topical Talk. The series of Topical Talks provide opportunities for educators to enhance their understanding of economic concepts and developments in the Australian economy through hearing insights from an economist on a relevant topic. The talks are free of charge and aimed at a range of educators, from secondary school to the tertiary sector.

Daniel Rees (Head of Macroeconomic Modelling, Economic Analysis) will be presenting on Wealth and Consumption at 9.30am on Monday, 25 March 2019 at the Reserve Bank of Australia, 65 Martin Place, Sydney NSW 2000. The talk will present some of the Bank's recent research on the relationship between household wealth and consumption. It will also discuss some of the potential implications of increases and declines in household wealth over recent years, and how this might depend on broader macroeconomic conditions.
