Responsibility /

by Hage, Ghassan (ed.) | Eckersley, Robyn (ed.).

Publisher: Carlton, Vic. Melbourne University Press 2012Description: x, 236 p. : ill.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index.Summary: The concept of responsibility permeates social life. While it has many meanings, they often centre around questions of practical and moral accountability, culpability and liability. One can learn a great deal about a social formation by looking at the way the meanings of responsibility are deployed within it, the way they vary from one social space to another, and the way they are often at the centre of a political struggle over how we define and apportion blame. The essays in this book do more than examine such processes. Each in its own way also invites the reader to push existing assumptions about what individual, political, ecological and corporate responsibility entails.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

During the 2010 election campaign the Government outlined its commitment to reform Australia's NFP sector to deliver smarter regulation, reduce red-tape and improve the transparency and accountability of the sector.

The limits of nonprofit impact : a contingency framework for measuring social performance /

by Ebrahim, Alnoor | Harvard Business School | Rangan, V. Kasturi.

Publisher: Boston, MA Harvard Business School 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Harvard University. Harvard Business School working paper ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2010 Bibliography : p. 38-48Summary: Leaders of organizations in the social sector are under growing pressure to demonstrate their impacts on pressing societal problems such as global poverty. We review the debates around performance and impact, drawing on three literatures: strategic philanthropy, nonprofit management, and international development. We then develop a contingency framework for measuring results, suggesting that some organizations should measure long-term impacts, while others should focus on shorter-term outputs and outcomes. In closing, we discuss the implications of our analysis for future research on performance management.Availability: (1)

The price of civilization : economics and ethics after the fall /

II THE PATH TO PROSPERITY -- ch. 9 The Mindful Society -- ch. 10 Prosperity Regained -- ch. 11 Paying for Civilization -- ch. 12 The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Government -- ch. 13 The Millennial Renewal.Summary: Setting out a bold and provocative, yet responsible and achievable, plan, "The Price of Civilization" reveals why we must - and how we can - change our entire economic culture in this time of crisis. The world economy remains in a precarious state after the recent global recession - where quick fixes were implemented instead of sustainable solutions to systemic problems. Jeffrey Sachs argues powerfully for a new co-operative, common-sense political economy, one that stresses practical partnership between government and the private sector, demands competence in both arenas and occasionally insists on carefully chosen public and private sacrifices. In this new era of global capitalism, Sachs believes that we have to forget partisanship and solve these enormous problems together, clinically and holistically, just as one would approach the eradication of a disease. "The Price of Civilization" explains how government can be made to reform corporate culture by fairly policing compensation but not stifling competition and forced to improve our energy infrastructure by both taxing emissions and providing market incentives for innovation. Sachs shows how government, business and citizens can find common ground - on bank accountability, the decentralising of social services and taxing the super-rich - as a way to achieve our shared goals of efficiency, equity and sustainability. Sparing no-one but potentially benefiting us all, "The Price of Civilization" is a masterful roadmap, a programme designed to bridge seemingly impossible divides in our society and a way forward that we - and our leaders - ignore at our peril.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The regional impact of public service job cuts /

by Richardson, David | The Australia Institute | Denniss, Richard.

Publisher: Manuka, A.C.T. The Australia Institute 2010Description: 11 p.: ill.Other title: The Australia Institute. Policy brief No. 18.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The Coalition has proposed to cut the size of the Commonwealth public service workforce by 12,000 over the next two years. There has been considerable debate in Canberra, which employs more Commonwealth public servants than any other city, about the likely impact of such a contraction on the local economy. ; In addition to the direct effect of a reduction in the size of the public service it is also important to consider the indirect effects of such employment reductions. That is, when jobs are lost in one industry in a local economy the reduction in demand has 'spill over' or 'multiplier' effects on other industries. It was with these effects in mind that the ACTU recently estimated that, in addition to the 12,000 direct jobs that the Coalition planned to remove from the public service there would be an additional 18,000 jobs lost through this multiplier effect. The ACTU justified the claim that all 30,000 jobs would be lost in the ACT on the basis that the Coalition had ruled out cuts to 'front line' service delivery workers . ; In responding to this claim, the Liberal Senator for the ACT Gary Humphries claimed that the estimated reduction in Canberra's employment of 30,000 was exaggerated. His critique was based on the claim that only around one third of Commonwealth employment was based in Canberra . By that logic, the job losses in Canberra would be around 10,000 with the other 20,000 job losses spread across the country. ; Senator Humphries view appears, however, to contradict the view of Tony Abbot who has stated that 'front line service positions would be exempt'. ; While it is unclear whether or not the Coalition's plan to cut 12,000 jobs will be concentrated entirely in Canberra or spread across the country it is clear that the direct and indirect job losses associated with the proposed policy will have significant regional effects. This paper provides estimates of the likely job losses in other regions if, as suggested by Senator Humphries, the Coalition plans to spread the public sector cuts around the country rather than confine them to the ACT.Availability: (1)
