Join Richard Denniss, chief economist at The Australia Institute, for a special Politics in the Pub 6pm Wednesday 30th January for an exclusive preview of his upcoming book!
Building on the success of Richard's ground-breaking Quarterly Essay, Richard has expanded on the ideas he explored in the essay into book, Dead Right: How neoliberalism ate itself and what comes next.
In Dead Right, Richard Denniss explores what neoliberalism has done to Australia. For decades, we have been led to believe that the private sector does everything better, that governments can’t afford to provide the high-quality services they once did, but that security and prosperity for all are just around the corner. In fact, Australians are now less equal, millions of workers have no sick leave or paid holidays, and housing is unaffordable for many. Deregulation, privatisation and trickle-down economics have, we are told, delivered us twenty-seven years of growth ... but to what end?
Richard's book Dead Right is due to be released on 11th February, so come along and get the scoop from Richard on what's inside.
