Politics in the Pub: Two Futures

Come along to Politics in the Pub in September to hear Clare O'Neil MP and Tim Watts MP discuss their new book Two Futures: Australia at a Critical Moment.

Clare O'Neil and Tim Watts take the long view in this agenda setting book. They identify the dramatic changes looming on the horizon and outline creative ideas for tackling them. Fact-driven and progressive, optimistic and impassioned, Two Futures begins the debate about the decades ahead that we need to have. 

What will Australia be like in 2040? Will society be more unequal, the fair go long gone? What will drive economic growth? Will our democracy become ever more fractious, or can we revitalise it? And how should we respond to the Digital Revolution, climate change and regional instability?

These questions are central to Australia’s future—and they’re urgent.

Clare O’Neil is the federal Labor member for the seat of Hotham, in Melbourne’s south-east. She was Australia’s youngest female mayor and has been a management consultant with McKinsey & Company. She studied public policy as a Fulbright Scholar at Harvard’s Kennedy School.

Tim Watts is the federal Labor member for the seat of Gellibrand, in Melbourne’s west. Prior to entering parliament he was a senior manager at Telstra. He has been a lawyer at Mallesons Stephen Jaques and studied at the London School of Economics.
