Distinguished Professor Cees Dekker, one of Holland's most cited scientists, will give an ISCAST talk on the afternoon of March 17th in Wollongong.
We are delighted to announce the release of the latest 'meddlesome' volume from ISCAST Fellow Ian Harper.
If the publisher's description is anything to go by, it sounds like required reading!
Ian Harper just cannot stop meddling. During his 35-year career as a high-profile economist reviewing Australia’s competition policy, Victoria’s state finances or chairing the Australian Fair Pay Commission, he has acted out of a passionate belief that economists can actually be useful.
