Elizabeth Baldwin from the University of Queensland has won Treasury’s (no, not the wine company) student essay competition for a paper on how government can encourage productivity growth. Among the runners up Dilan SriDaran (UNSW) and Edward Fowler (ANU) also addressed productivity while Jessica Dunphy (UoQ, again) argued increasing multifactor productivity is important to address Australia’s ageing population. Susannah Stearman (yes, also from UoQ) argued we need more household investment in small and medium enterprises.
