Centre of Full Employment and Equity



Working Paper Series

The Centre of Full Employment and Equity Working Papers are published in PDF. If you want to request permission to quote any of our work that is in draft form or wish to receive a hard copy version please contact the Centre.

The Working Paper Series was largely discontinued in 2011 with some additional items added in 2013 and 2014. From then, most of the unpublished research of CofFEE Director, Professor Bill Mitchell appears in his daily blog posts. Other researchers, similarly, use social media to promote their working notes. This is now considered a more efficient way of disseminating the research activities prior to formal publication.
