Richard Denniss in conversation with Don Watson
Church of All Nations, 180 Palmerston Street, Carlton
This event is now sold out.
For 30 years, we were told that privatisation and economic reform would be good for everyone. But now the results are in and they are far from positive with public services undermined and corporations gaming the system. In response, we are seeing a political backlash against ‘reform’, and for the Coalition in particular, this is a threat to unity.
In his passionate new Quarterly Essay, Richard Denniss argues for a more pragmatic, consultative politics. He considers whether the major parties can find a new, and persuasive, way to talk about the national interest.
Denniss will discuss the ideas raised in his essay with Don Watson.
