Richard Denniss: Dead Right Book Tour (Melbourne)

Dead_right_-_RD_January_2019.jpg

 

Richard Denniss, chief economist at The Australia Institute, has updated and expanded his best-selling Quarterly Essay into his newest book Dead Right: How neoliberalism ate itself and what comes next.

Australian Fabians and The Australia Institute are proud to invite you to the Melbourne leg of his book tour.

"In Dead Right, Richard explores ideas around 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 economic growth ... but to what end?

This updated and expanded edition of Richard Denniss’ bestselling Quarterly Essay gives a template for understanding the next federal election; discusses how and why the right of politics has continued to splinter; focuses on why energy and climate policy is such a problem for conservative politics; and looks in more detail at what could come after neoliberalism."
