Yaz Naji


Yaz is a Secyaz_najiond Year Commerce student majoring in Economics and Finance. Wanting to follow in Paul Keating’s footsteps, Yaz has fostered a love for the application of Economics to public policy from a very early age.

Yaz joined ESSA to raise the standard of economic dialogue around campus as he is a firm believer that economics provides the best framework to analyse the world, and that societal issues can be solved through economic debate and consideration.

 As the Equilibrium editor, Yaz is responsible for publishing Equilibrium, ESSA’s annual publication. Despite his formal role, Yaz considers his main role to be as obnoxious as possible during ESSA meetings, consistently drawing the ire of his senior colleagues.

In his spare time, Yaz divides his time between obsessing over Italian football team, Juventus, and frequenting Ringwood’s local establishments which has taught him almost as much about life as studying economics. A TV and film snob, one can often find Yaz preaching to his mates in a desperate attempt to get them to watch The Wire, (it’s just so real). Somewhat contradictory to this, Yaz considers comedy metal bands Tenacious D and Steel Panther to be the magnum opus of Western music, closely followed by 80s Power Ballads and 90s Gangsta Rap.
