ESSA hits local Melbourne Radio Station!

ESSA had its radio debut this week, with Publications Director Dean Pagonis interviewed by Karl Williamson (‘The Renegade Economist) on local Melbourne Radio Station, 3CR. Karl first noticed ESSA, and Dean more particularly during the Australian Conference of Economists, as he caught on to Dean’s tweeting from the Conference. He was then drawn to the ESSA website,, where he read Dean’s personal reflections on the conference each day. Karl felt compelled to bring Dean in to get a student’s thoughts and perspective on economics.

The interview focused on a range of topics, from opportunity cost and scarcity, to questioning the current economic system post-GFC. It was also an opportunity for Dean to promote ESSA’s upcoming event, ESSA Q&A. Register for Q&A here.
