Today’s episode is from one of our ‘Economics of a pandemic’ webinar series, featuring Professor Ross Garnaut, renowned economist and author of Superpower: Australia’s Low-Carbon Opportunity.
Professor Garnaut was in conversation with economist and director of the Australia Institute’s Centre for Future Work, Jim Stanford, and Dan Nahum – economist at the Centre for Future Work about a renewably powered manufacturing sector in Australia.
To say there’s been renewed interest in Australian manufacturing since the pandemic would be an understatement. The question is, how can a resurgent manufacturing sector be part of a transition to a low-carbon economy?
This was recorded live on Friday 8 May 2020 and things may have changed since recording.
