Michael Husek is a Researcher with the Institute of Public Affairs.

Michael completed an Honours Degree of Bachelor of Arts at Monash University in 2015. His thesis concerns Australia’s agricultural economy, and examined the themes of foreign investment, the effects of government policy on the economy, and the role of political self-interest in policy making. He previously completed a Bachelor of Arts at Monash, majoring in politics.

Michael was first exposed to the ideas of freedom when he read Animal Farm while at high school. Throughout his time at university he came to understand that it is people, not governments, that create wealth, and that free markets are the best means of raising living standards and fostering social mobility.

Michael first developed an interest in the IPA in 2012 when it campaigned against laws proposed by the Gillard Government to restrict freedom of association and the freedom of the media. He subsequently became a member of the IPA upon observing its consistent commitment to promoting economic, social and political freedom.

Michael is interested in a wide range of policy fields, but he does have a particular interest in issues that affect young people including the national debt, youth unemployment, and protecting civil liberties for future generations.
