Health economics - does health insurance save you money?
Sarina Lacey leads the Health Economics Business Unit at the Centre for International Economics and will be speaking to us about health economics, the impact that has on individual finances and health insurance.
Shaped in the late 1900's with the commencement of Medicare, Australia's health system is very different to any other country: giving Australians universal access but, what is the cost of that and what role does private health insurance play? From a society perspective, health insurance is very much worth it for the betterment of the overall health sector but as an individual is it worth your while?
Join us for this episode of talkBIG as we discuss all things Health.

Economic effects of climate change
David Pearce has been studying the economic effects of climate change and related issues for over 30 years. Over recent times in Australia alone, we've experienced increasing economic threats due to floods, bushfires and natural disasters. Being a coastal nation, sea levels rising which will affect most of our major cities in the near future. Maintaining agricultural productivity, more droughts or floods and heat stress in general will also be of a particular concern.
When the solution seems clear, how can one make world leaders think beyond the next 2-3 years? The estimated cost of climate change itself to the Australian economy is predicted to be between 2-6% GDP. It is also in our interest to be part of international efforts to reduce emissions and to encourage other larger polluting countries to lower theirs.
In this episode, we explore the opportunities available and what might be hindering more rapid progress from both the Government and private sector.
