Dr John Tippett

John has lectured in economics for over 30 years, domestically and internationally, in both the university environment and the public arena.

His formal training as an economist began at the University of Melbourne and continued at Monash University. An upbringing on a family farm in north-western Victoria, Australia and early studies in agricultural science had a large influence on forming in him values of self-reliance, responsibility and practicality, all of which interpenetrate his thoughts and writings on economics; and his 30 plus years of active membership of the School of Philosophy in Melbourne has been an even greater influence in this regard.
