Adelaide Business School
Treasurer Hon Rob Lucas MLC with Professor Christopher Findlay
The Marshall Government’s first budget is based on three principles: “cleaning up the mess left by the former government, keeping all the government’s election promises and building a strong foundation for the future”. Will the budget and the government deliver on its commitment to create more jobs, lower costs and provide better services for South Australians?
The Treasurer will deliberate with Professor Christopher Findlay, Executive Dean, Faculty of the Professions at The University of Adelaide, a role he has filled since 2011. Previously he was Professor of Economics and Head of School at The University of Adelaide. Professor Findlay is recognised as a remarkable teacher and researcher with extensive experience in both public and private sector consultancy.
