About Annual Colin Clark Lecture

The Colin Clark Lecture is our most prestigious annual lecture and is now in its 28th year.  The Colin Clark Memorial Lecture is held each year to recognise Dr Colin Clark’s outstanding contribution to the field of economics. Dr Colin Clark was a UQ Economics academic whose work on national income accounting was fundamentally important to the development of macroeconomics and to the approach of John Maynard Keynes. Dr Clark's greatest contribution to economics was his pioneering role in the construction of national accounts.

Previous speakers have included Professor Paul Schreyer, Deputy Chief Statistician at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD); Professor Erwin Diewert from the University of British Columbia; Professor Warwick McKibbon from ANU; and Professor Bart Van Ark from the Royal University of Groningen and the Conference Board (New York, USA).
