The three-day Sustainable Prosperity Conference in Adelaide at the University of Adelaide Campus was a congregation of some of the world’s most progressive economists and thinkers from various fields. The conference strongly advocated for progressive economic reforms, improving the fairness of the economic system, and to undertake resolute action on climate change. The conference included 28 distinguished speakers, with some of the most notable being Prof. Herman Daly, University of Maryland; Prof. Robert Costanza, Australian National University; Dr Steven Hail, University of Adelaide; Assoc. Prof. Philip Lawn, Wakefield Futures Group; Alex North, Australian Unemployed Workers’ Union; and Emeritus Professor Bill Mitchell, Chair in Economics and Director of the Centre for Full Employment and Equity (CofFEE), an official research centre of the University of Newcastle in New South Wales. Some of the key topics of the conference was : an overview of economics for sustainable prosperity, modern monetary theory, the potential for a job guarantee scheme to contribute towards economic stability and social justice, the feasibility of a rapid transition to 100% green and renewable energy, the political economy of a new green deal, and an appropriate way to measure genuine progress, how to conceptualise a sustainable future and many other thought provoking policy agendas. https://acsdri.com/resources/
