For 60 years CEDA has debated and discussed critical issues through our research and events platform – now we bring the conversation right to you with our Podcasts. Hear directly from some of Australia best and brightest policy minds alongside our CEO Melinda Cilento and Chief Economist Jarrod Ball, as we explore the issues and pursue solutions that deliver better economic and social outcomes for the greater good.
In this edition of The Greater Good, CEDA CEO Melinda Cilento spoke with Hireup Co-Founder and CEO Jordan O'Reilly about the NDIS, individualisation in disability support, and the implications of technology in innovation.
With a review of the retirement income system underway, and the superannuation sector navigating market volatility, CEDA Chief Economist Jarrod Ball is joined by Damian Graham of First State Super to explore the role of superannuation in Australia's economic recovery.
CEDA Chief Economist Jarrod Ball is joined in this episode by Professor Tracy Merlin of the University of Adelaide to hear about the Group of Eight's "COVID-19 Roadmap to Recovery" report, and what difficulties a COVID-19 vaccine presents.
With the easing of lockdown restrictions on the horizon for Australia, CEDA Chief Economist Jarrod Ball spoke with Dr. Hubertus Bardt to find out how Germany has coped with the crisis, and how their opening of the country again compares with Australia's plan.
Science and technology is at the forefront of our efforts to contain the COVID-19 crisis but it will also shape our path forward. CEDA CEO, Melinda Cilento, speaks with CSIRO Chief Executive, Dr Larry Marshall, about how CSIRO has helped to manage the COVID-19 crisis in Australia and the role innovation will play in the recovery.
The COVID-19 crisis has put tremendous pressure on the arts sector but Copyright Agency Chair, Kim Williams, says the sector was in need of help even before the pandemic. He spoke with CEDA CEO, Melinda Cilento, about the value of the arts to Australia's culture and economy and why government investment in this space is more important than ever.
The economic impact of COVID-19 is likely to have a significant impact on the Australian housing market. In this episode, CEDA Chief Economist Jarrod Ball is joined by Tim Lawless (Head of Research, CoreLogic Asia Pacific), who gives valuable insights into how the market might look on the other side of COVID-19.
Internet usage has spiked significantly in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, as Australia looks to the internet to provide entertainment, social interactions, and facilitate their work. CEDA CEO Melinda Cilento spoke with NBN Co. CEO Stephen Rue to understand how the NBN is dealing with the increased load.
Today Newgate has released their latest weekly survey of Australians, focusing on how the public is feeling about the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. CEDA Chief Economist Jarrod Ball, is joined by Managing Director, Sue Vercoe and Managing Partner, Brian Tyson to discuss the findings of the survey.
How do you lead one of Australia's largest businesses in times of crisis? CEDA CEO Melinda Cilento spoke with Wesfarmers CEO Rob Scott to find out.
(Listeners will hopefully appreciate that we are trialling different ways of recording our interviews across many locations. On occasion, and this is one of them, the audio is not as perfect as we would like and that’s on us but we believe you will still get a lot out of the conversation and Rob’s insights as a compassionate business a leader in these difficult times.)
In times of crisis, the importance of effective communication cannot be understated. With social media fuelling the fires of panic, leaders need to be clear and timely with their communication strategies in order to minimise both short and long term damage.
Joining CEDA CEO Melinda Cilento today is Dr Collette Snowden from the University of South Australia.
It's been just over a week since the last episode of The Economists' Corner, and a lot has changed in the time since then. The RBA has stepped in with emergency measures, travel restrictions have been bolstered, and cases of the coronavirus have continued to grow.
Today CEDA Chief Economist Jarrod Ball speaks with EY Chief Economist Joanne Masters, to try to make sense of it all.
Australia has established an international reputation for weathering global shocks, highlighted by over 28 years of uninterrupted economic growth - longest period of recession-free growth for a developed economy. However, it is clear that the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) represents a massive and unfolding international shock, that the OECD warns presents the biggest danger to the global economy since the financial crisis.
In fact, new research from ANU economics professor and former Reserve Bank board member Warwick McKibbin warned that GDP loss from the most severe outbreak could be as much as 7.9 per cent, with even a less severe global pandemic possibly taking 2 percentage points off Australian growth in 2020.
Already businesses are dealing with lost revenue and disrupted supply chains due to China’s factory shutdowns, tens of millions of people remain in lockdown in dozens of cities in China, Asia, the Middle East and Europe and restrictions on the global movement of people are increasing. And whilst the economic cost increases globally everyday, the massive human impact and disruption in China cannot and must not be overlooked.
However, it is also clear that panic buying, racism, mis-information and fake news are fuelling unnecessary fear in communities.
The event will look at the current and emerging impacts of the Coronavirus across sectors of the SA economy, the disruption to supply chains and importantly the effect on our strong relationship with China.
