John Daley is Chief Executive of Grattan Institute. Grattan Institute’s work is independent, rigorous, and practical and fosters informed public debate on the key issues for Australia, through both private forums and public events, engaging key decision makers and the broader community.
The current programs of Grattan Institute focus on productivity growth, cities, school education, tertiary education, energy and health. These programs were selected as important to Australia’s future, where fact-based analysis could assist the debate, and where it is believed key issues could benefit from further public debate.
John graduated from the University of Oxford in 1999 with a DPhil in public law after completing an LLB (Hons) and a BSc from the University of Melbourne in 1990.
He has 20 years’ experience spanning policy, academic, government and corporate roles at the University of Melbourne, the University of Oxford, the Victorian Department of Premier and Cabinet, consulting firm McKinsey and Co and most recently at ANZ where he was Managing Director of the online stockbroker, E*TRADE Australia.
John’s current research and publishing interests include government prioritisation, the objectives of government, the situations in which government intervention is justified, and the limits to government.
