We host the Giblin Lecture annually alongside the Economic Society of Australia (Tasmania Branch) in memory of Lyndhurst Giblin. Lyndhurst Falkiner Giblin, a Tasmanian born economist (1982-1951), played an important role in the evolution of economic policy making in Australia. He served as the Tasmanian Government Statistician, acting Commonwealth Statistician and advised on Tariff and Depression policy, as well as seeing active duty in the First World War. His academic positions of note include the inaugural Ritchie Chair of Economic Research at the University of Melbourne. The Giblin Lecture aims to stimulate economic debate on topics of the day.
