Dutton may be leading the Liberal Party to a pyrrhic victory; Our future manufacturing sector – dispel Holdens and Bonds underwear from your mind; and how the “small government” idea is stifling the nation. Read on for our Weekly Roundup of links to articles, reports, podcasts and other media on current political and economic issues in public policy.

Economics

Truckies’ protests – a call for justice and safety. We are let down by a risk-averse insurance industry. A look into the rental market: it’s really several markets. The burden of loneliness. How the rich and their advisers don’t understand wealth. Our future manufacturing sector – dispel Holdens and Bonds underwear from your mind.

Politics

An opportunity to hear from an endangered species: a Liberal Party MP with a vision of the public purpose. The slow path to re-building the public service. How we get our news – if we bother at all. Polling – we want the government to get a move-on, and Dutton may be leading the Liberal Party to a pyrrhic victory. Can the world’s social democrats hold on to the youth vote? Don’t make Morrison the scapegoat for our political failings. Julian Assange is running low on options.

Public ideas

How the “small government” idea is stifling the nation. On Fascism.
