New series of online student talks from the RBA

The RBA is committed to supporting Economics teachers and students by providing access to its economists and their insights.

We received overwhelmingly positive feedback regarding our online events last year, which enabled access for schools across all regions of Australia.

For 2021, we have scheduled an extensive series of online talks throughout the academic year, via Zoom. There are two talk types to choose from:

• Monetary Policy & Current Economic Conditions (aimed at Years 11 and 12) – An economist will share insights on how the RBA conducts monetary policy, and current conditions in the Australian economy. A recent graduate will also share insights on his or her career path and role, discussing the benefits of studying Economics.

• Introduction to Economics (aimed at Years 9 and 10) – An economist will provide an introduction to the economy, the role of the RBA, and the benefits of studying economics.

Talks from February to May 2021 have now been uploaded to the website. Teachers can register for any of the talks and will be sent a link nearer the time, which they will be able to share with their students.

As with all the RBA’s resources, talks and events are free. Registrations can be made at: https://www.rba.gov.au/education/book-a-talk/
