"...and where are we now? : thoughts on the 2004 election." 2004 Sambell Oration / by Robert Manne

by Manne, Robert | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2004Description: 15 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: The 22nd annual Sambell Oration, Wednesday 20 October 2004 at Central Hall, Australian Catholic University, 20 Brunswick Street Fitzroy. 2 copiesSummary: Shortly after the November 2001 election I gave a talk which I called: “Where are we now?” The “we” here was deliberately ambiguous, referring both to Australia and to the kind of audience I knew would attend on that night—the left-liberal intelligentsia. When I was asked to provide a topic for tonight’s lecture, which I knew would occur shortly after the 2004 election, somewhat mischievously I suggested the title: “…And where are we now?” The “we” here has an identical ambiguity. Of course the title chosen allowed me to speak about a Labor victory if that were to occur. However as I believed it was almost certain that Labor would be defeated, I imagined that I would be speaking about the meaning of the defeat, as unhappily from my point of view I now am. For those who are enthusiastic about the victory of the Howard government I can only offer my apologies in advance. At least what follows will allow them to think about the interpretation of someone who regards the trajectory of Australia since 1996 with undisguised alarm Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

A social agenda for equity and efficiency. /

by Argy, Fred | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence and Centre for Public Policy, University of Melbourne 2004Description: 11 p.Other title: Social policy working paper ; no. 1.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: August 2004 Includes bibliographical references (p. 10-11) This paper is developed from a presentation at a symposium `From welfare state to social investment state?' hosted by the Brotherhood of St Laurence, University of Melbourne Centre for Public Policy and Victorian Council of Social Services in Melbourne on 5 July 2004.Summary: Fred Argy argues that in spite of Australia s economic prosperity, the policy shift away from egalitarianism and social spending has had damaging effects on Australian households. The policy change has been driven not by community attitudes, economic necessity; the population s ageing or social security system failure, but by the changing power structure, spawned by globalisation, in which belief in small government and self-reliance has become dominant. Responding to this political context requires a new approach, focusing less on simple income inequality and more on quality of life and equality of opportunity.Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).
