Cost? $32 per person for dinner & debate
Topic? Jeff’s recent book “Little Green Lies”
Professor Bennett is an academic with the Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra, and he has over 30 years experience researching, consulting and teaching in the fields of Environmental Economics, Natural Resource Economics, Agricultural Economics and Applied Micro-Economics.
He is a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia and a Distinguished Fellow of the Australian Agricultural and Resource Economics Society. Jeff was also President of that Society in 2002. He is a member of the Academic Advisory Council of the Centre for Independent Studies and an elected member of the Mont Pelerin Society. From 2007 to 2011, Jeff was Director of the Environmental and Economics Research Hub.
This event will allow Jeff to talk about his recently released new book “Little Green Lies” which has a careful look at parts of the environmental movement.
“unlike ‘little white lies’, telling ‘little green lies’ is not harmless. If they become so widely accepted that they form the basis of government policies, our society can be worse off for them. They can even end up causing environmental damage.”
The evening will cost $32 per person, which includes all you can eat excellent pizza, pasta and other Italian treats. The restaurant can cater for vegetarian diets, but cannot cater for people with gluten intolerance or garlic allergies. There is an excellent selection of beer wine and some spirits. Restaurant staff will be coming around and taking individual bar tabs which are to be paid as you leave, but there’s no corkage if you want to bring your own alcohol.
We look forward to seeing you there.
This sounds like a good book to buy, and even read! Can one get it in shops now?
