About

Welcome to my website on trade, technology, and public policy, a place where I share what I’m working on in terms of teaching, writing, and thinking.

My name is Simon Lacey and I teach international trade at the School of Econoimcs and Public Policy at the University of Adelaide.

I’ve been working in the field of international trade since the early 2000s and have advised sovereigns and corporates in more than 30 countries, several of which I have lived in over extended periods. Originally from Sydney Australia, I was raised and educated in the United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland and the United States, and most recently lived in China and before that Indonesia. Happy to hear [constructive] feedback from [almost] anyone.
