2013 Wheelwright Memorial Lecture in Political Economy

Susan George

The Growing Power of Illegitimate Authority

29th August, 6pm, Eastern Avenue Auditorium, University of Sydney

Susan George is renowned for her ground-breaking analyses of global issues. Her lecture will reflect on the growing power of illegitimate authority in transnational corporations and other institutions
that are not democratically accountable for their actions. Susan is also recognised for extensive activism and describes her work thus:

"The job of the responsible social scientist is first to uncover these forces [of wealth, power and control], to write about them clearly, without jargon... and take an advocacy position in 
favour of the disadvantaged, the underdogs, the victims of injustice."
