Jacques De Wet

Research Assistant


Shortly after commencing a Bachelor of Economics and Commerce degree at the University of Queensland in 2016, Jacques joined Urban Economics seeking to gain experience and apply his knowledge to real-world situations. In his spare time, Jacques manages a small start-up fund and relishes the opportunity to understand the workings of economics when applied. Urban Economics is providing Jacques with a new perspective on applying his interest in economics to the urban landscape.
I find economics thrilling as it allows one to explore the knock-on effects of particular actions, using the past to explain the future.
