Major Theme: The Way Forward - Austerity or Stimulus
The Conference was held at the University of Newcastle from Wednesday, December 7 to Thursday, December 8, 2011.
The theme of the conference was the on-going economic crisis which means that tens of millions remain unemployed, a large proportion of productive capacity remains idle, and vast quantities of output and income are being foregone.
The political landscape seems divorced from this reality and instead of creating jobs governments are seeking ways to impose fiscal austerity to reduce their budget deficits at a time when private spending is still mostly weak.
The Conference will explored the apparent contradictions of the policy stances that are now emerging amidst the global unemployment crisis.
