ACCC is never boring
By Matthew De Bortoli, Year 11 Economics Captain
On 31 October, Radford’s Year 11 Economics and Year 12 Business Studies classes had the pleasure to listen to Delia Rickard, the Deputy Chair of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). The ACCC plays a critical role in the Australian economy, with its department objectives being to ensure private sector competitiveness, pursue litigation against illegal and anti-competitive corporate behaviour and protect consumer rights. Ms Rickard explained a number of real past cases and their outcomes and answered numerous questions from students. She says there is never a boring day when working at the ACCC. We would like to thank Ms Rickard for taking time out of her busy schedule to come and share her insights and knowledge.
