21 August 2017

Debts we can’t repay, wages that don’t cover our cost of living and struggling degree-educated millennials working unpaid internships. These are just some of the financial issues facing our society today that pose the question: Why do we now not earn enough to live? On Monday 21 August in the fourth instalment of Macquarie University’s Lighthouse Lecture Series, Professor Lisa Adkins from the University of Newcastle will join us to discuss The Time of Money. Adkins will cover a range of issues on how the logic of speculation is transforming our everyday lives and will consider how this impacts our society.

Physician competition and low value health care seminar

24 August 2017

In this seminar, we will examine the impact of competition on the quality of care provided by physicians. New data on 328,000 consultations with 3,280 GPs are used to examine if competition changes the provision of low value care, as defined by the Choosing Wisely campaign. We have rich data on GPs and patients and competition facing a GP is measured by the distance to other GPs. Small area (postcode) fixed effects are included in our model to allow for unobserved area level factors affecting GP competition and quality.
