High vaccination coverage is required before public health measures can be relaxed and Australia’s international border fully reopen
In this seminar the author will present his model on possible eventual public health outcomes (cases, hospitalisations and fatalities) of Phase D, the Post Vaccination Phase (to live with COVID-19: management consistent with influenza or other infectious diseases) of the National Plan to transition Australia’s National COVID-19 Response.
This seminar provides an overview of two recent OECD studies, which exploit novel real-time data sources to shed light on the impact of the pandemic on productivity-enhancing reallocation, including the role of job retention schemes in this process.
Malhar Nabar and John Bluedorn will walk us through the latest findings from the World Economic Outlook produced by the International Monetary Fund.

What is the state of macroeconomics? We explore this question by hand-collecting information on the epistemological approaches, theoretical and empirical methods and data sources used in macro research for 1,894 published papers.
The presentation reviews some of the key findings and policy insights from the presenter’s co-authored papers in relation to COVID-19.
Dr Morris will discuss the dramatically changed outlook for climate policy in the United States arising from the election of Joe Biden. She’ll cover which potential initiatives the new Administration can pursue with existing authority along with the leading options that would require bipartisan cooperation with a Republican-held Senate. She’ll review what these changes mean for the United States’ participation in the Paris Agreement and other international relations.
The study presented in this webinar revisits optimal fiscal policies in response to population ageing by introducing an age-dependent increasing risk aversion assumption into an OLG model with risk-sensitive preferences to factor in the welfare cost of the policy-induced uncertainties.
