After Covid and Neoliberalism: a new direction for economy and society
Join us with Dr. Sarah Howe in conversation with Professor John McKay for a deep dive into the structural problems in the Australian economy, laid bare by the COVID-19 pandemic. These issues have been evident for many years, and led to greater trauma for Australians than if we had entered the pandemic with a fairer economic system.
Australia has an opportunity to rethink entrenched policy directions. John calls for bold and imaginative industrial policy to transform the economy and society more broadly.
Dr Sarah Howe is a member of the Victorian Fabians, She has a PhD in Economics with a special interest in industrial policy and regional economic development.
