BEA National Conference

The theme for this year’s conference is “Connected: Together is Better” and focuses on reuniting educators across the country to engage in proactive discussions on emerging business concepts, and changes to the curriculum, offering opportunity to share knowledge amongst peers to improve systems nationally.

As business educators, we share a vision to give every student opportunities to acquire knowledge and understanding that can be applied creatively to problem solve issues in the context of the corporate world.

The disruption of COVID-19 may have created physical barriers, and challenged the way in which teaching is conducted; however, the business world has evolved as a consequence. It’s time to reconnect, and embrace the opportunity to collaborate and share expertise, challenges and learn from one other.

The University of Queensland, School of Economics – Colin Clark Memorial Lecture

GDP-B: Accounting for the value of new and free goods in the digital economy

 

Digital media consumes a huge portion of our lives with the average Australian spending almost 40 hours per week online. That is roughly the same amount of time as a full-time job spent on smartphone apps, searching Google, scrolling social media, following maps, studying online, streaming music, videos and more. But these goods and services go largely uncounted in official measures of economic activity such as GDP and productivity.

 

In this webinar, Professor Erik Brynjolfsson, Stanford University, will explain how potential mismeasurement can arise from not fully accounting for such digital resources, while also putting forward a new metric labelled GDP-B, as it captures the benefits associated with new and free goods and is seen to go “beyond GDP”.

 

Date: Thursday 3 March 2022

Time: 12–1pm AEST
