March Assembly - Luck

Feeling Lucky?


There are many ways to interpret luck. As a karmic reward for those who are tenacious (the harder I work the luckier I get), organised (luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity) or kind (what goes around comes around). On the other hand, luck has no real connection to our actions, it is unreliable (don't push your luck), it is false (luck is the idol of the idle) and it is finite (luck never gives back, it only lends). How can we talk about something that is so ethereal and immeasurable? Well, measurable it could be - at least that is the question we ask our guest economist at our luck-themed March assembly.

For March we are excited to host Dr Andrew Leigh, who literally wrote the book on The Economics of Just About Everything. Andrew will be talking to us, not about probabilities, but about our theme of luck (or are they inter-linked!) Andrew is a well known local identity, a former research professor at ANU and the current federal MP for Fraser (which includes Dickson). Note: The SA is apolitical and Andrew will be talking to us in his personal capacity. He has also just released a new book The Luck of Politics.
