‘Welcome to my website …
I’m an independent economist, speaker, company director
and Vice-Chancellor’s Fellow at the University of Tasmania’


Welcome to my website. Here you’ll find a bit about me and my work as an economist. My most recent articles, talks and presentations can be found here, while there is a more complete archive, organized by topics, here. There’s also a guide to upcoming events and appearances. Other links below will take you to things that other people are saying, either about me or about topics in which I also have an interest.

The material on this site is free – but I still need to earn a living, so I offer my professional services through my own consultancy business, Corinna Economic Advisory.

In addition to my work as an economist, I am also a Vice-Chancellor’s Fellow at the University of Tasmania; a non-executive director of Housing Choices Australia Ltd, a not-for-profit provider and manager of affordable housing for disadvantaged people; a non-executive director of the Macquarie Point Development Corporation, a Tasmanian Government agency responsible for the redevelopment of a 9-hectare site adjoining the Hobart waterfront; and Chairman of Ten Days on the Island, Tasmania’s bi-ennial statewide multi-arts festival. I am a member of the panel of expert advisors to Australia’s Parliamentary Budget Office, which provides independent and non-partisan analysis of the budget cycle, fiscal policy and the financial implications of proposals to members of Australia’s national Parliament; and a member of the independent expert panel advising the Australian Taxation Office on its ‘tax gap estimates‘. I am also a member of the Advisory Board of Jamieson Coote Bonds, a funds management business based in Melbourne and specializing in government bonds. I do some consulting work through GLGSGS Economics & Planning  and Nous Group. And I am Patron of Working It Out, which provides support services to people negotiating their gender, sexuality or intersex status in Tasmania.

Please feel free to get in touch with me using the contact me link.
