I was born and educated in England. After completing Bachelor and Masters degrees at the London School of Economics, I came to Australia in 1969 on a PhD scholarship at the Australian National University. My principal career-track has been as an academic economist in the University system. However, I have also taken time-out to play numerous advisory roles in both the public and private sector and for international organisations.
I am currently Emeritus Professor of Economics at the University of Adelaide and a Visiting Research Fellow in the School of Economics. I recently completed a 5 year term as a Member of the quasi-judicial Australian Competition Tribunal which reviews, on appeal, decisions of Australia's competition regulator, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).
My previous appointments include having been Professor of Economics at the University of Adelaide (1980-1988); Professor of Economics and Director of the Federalism Research Centre in the Research School of Social Sciences at Australian National University (1988-1992); and Professor of Economic Studies and Executive Director of the South Australian Centre for Economic Studies (SACES), a joint appointment at the University of Adelaide and the Flinders University of South Australia (1992-2001).
My academic research and publications have been principally in the fields of microeconomics; welfare economics; public sector economics and public policy more broadly; and intergovernmental economic, administrative and political relationships.
I have also undertaken project/consultancy research:
In addition, I have undertaken numerous full-time and part-time roles in the Australian public sector, including:
A Resume (attached) provides further details on these and other roles that I have played. A Full CV, which includes a list of all of my publications and all of my academic and other affiliations, is also attached.
