The Crawford School of Public Policy, together with the The Tax and Transfer Policy Institute and the Development Policy Centre are pleased to host a seminar on Complexity in governments and markets.

As Governments expanded their activities over the years, pushing spending from around 10 per cent of GDP at the beginning of the last century to the current levels of 30 to 50 per cent of GDP, while increasing intervention through regulations, they tended to lose much of their ability to monitor well what they did. This led to problems of corruption, inefficiency, rent seeking, cronyism, and generally less equitable results in terms of economic results and income distribution.

Professor Vito Tanzi will present and discuss the challenge of complexity in governments and markets in terms of tax, spending and regulation.

Date: Wednesday 19 April 2017
Time: 5.00pm–6.30pm
Venue: Weston Theatre, Level 1, JG Crawford Building 132, Lennox Crossing, ANU
