Symposium on Actually existing markets
This symposium will discuss the actual nature, operation and outcomes of contemporary markets for many former public goods. The permeation of Australian public policies by market-inspired policy instruments has meant substantial change to a wide range of already existing markets which have traditionally supplied public goods such as education, health insurance, public housing, services for the aged and unemployed, infrastructure, water and electricity as well as the creation of new markets for goods previously not traded such as pollution reduction. How are these markets organised and what ensures their ongoing functioning? What is the nature of the goods and services provided by these markets? How does this differ from previous public sector provision and orthodox economic theory? What issues or barriers do Australians encounter when engaging with these markets? What policy objectives and outcomes are these markets delivering? Can these outcomes be improved by changes to these markets? It is intended to explore these questions and more.
