Surplus fetish : the political economy of the surplus, deficit and debt /

by Richardson, David | The Australia Institute.

Publisher: Manuka, A.C.T. The Australian Institute 2011Description: PDF.Other title: The Australian Institude policy brief ; no. 26.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2011Summary: The federal budget presents a complex management puzzle that all governments have to address and explain to the electorate. Sometimes concepts are borrowed from the corporate sector and sometimes analogies are made with the household sector; the Howard Government, in particular, imported numerous corporate accounting concepts. But often these concepts are applied uncritically and inappropriately. By way of discussing the budget balance 'surpluses, deficits and the debt outcome' this paper addresses some of those inappropriate usages and their consequences.Availability: (1)

What's the story? : nation-building narratives in Australian climate politics : Climate change : the challenge for Australian social democracy /

by Hetherington, David | Policy Network | Soutphommasane, Tim.

Publisher: London, U.K. Policy Network 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2010Summary: Climate change politics in Australia has become the focus of much attention in the midst of incendiary rhetoric, increasing public disillusionment and a fear that debate is slipping into the partisan and unforgiving arena of the national "culture wars". Social democrats can learn from the Australian experience, which underlines the need to move away from cosmopolitan ethics and towards muscular nation-building, build broad coalitions of support and acknowledge that reform will be costly but must still be based on core principals of social justice.
