Engaged Egalitarianism: Why the Australian Recovery Must Prioritise Openness

The pandemic years have seen a collapse in migration, tourism and offshore investment. As the nation recovers, these traditional sources of economic growth will be vital to national prosperity. Yet it is vital to ensure that the gains from openness are broadly shared across the community. This approach, which I describe as ‘engaged egalitarianism’ will be vital to ensuring openness delivers fairness, as well as to avoiding the political backlash against open markets that might otherwise ensue.  Join us for this in-person event (venue to be confirmed).

Policy in the Pub: Public Transport Pricing - ONLINE ONLY

Event Type: ESA Event

Date: Wednesday Mar 23, 2022, 5:30 pm

They have continued to run below capacity post-lockdown, thanks to renewed preferences for car travel and the rise of work-from-home practices. In the longer term, as urban populations grow, public transport will no doubt return to higher patronage — and to familiar capacity constraints.
