The University of Western Australia's Business School has lined up a panel of experts including Professor Raymond da Silva Rosa and Professor Ken Clements to discuss the worldwide financial crisis at a free public forum this week.
Scarcely comprehensible in the speed of its unfolding and severity, the crisis is likely to have significant knock-on effects on the WA economy, among others.
In view of widespread community interest in this issue, the panel of experts will discuss the crisis and what it may mean for the local, national and international economy with the intention of informing and broadening public debate. The format of this event is a panel presentation followed by a question and answer session.
Professor da Silva Rosa is Director of WA Centre for Capital Markets Research at UWA's Business School and Professor Clements is Professor of Economics and BHP Billiton Research Fellow at UWA's Business School.
Other speakers are Dr Michael McLure, Economic Historian and Senior Lecturer, UWA Business School, Associate Professor Phil Hancock, UWA Business School and Alex Passmore, Head of Metals and Mining, Pattersons Securities Limited.
