Former Victorian Treasurer John Lenders visits Economics Class

By elthamcollege | In ELTHAM College | on August 4, 2017

We were honoured to welcome John Lenders, the former member for the Southern Metropolitan Region, who spent more than 14 years in public office, to the College on Tuesday 25 July. Mr Lenders was the Treasurer from 2007 to 2010 and a senior Minister for eight years under the Bracks and Brumby Governments.

He talked to our students about his role as Treasurer and explained the need for government to make economic decisions that balance the impact on the environment, on society and on people; and the need to achieve economic growth. As Treasurer he was responsible for delivering the State Budget and providing strategic advice to government on its economic, financial and budgetary policies. He also helped steer Victoria through the challenges of the global financial crisis.

It was a very insightful talk which enlightened our students on the importance of economics.
