Time for a new consensus

Tom Bentley (one of Open Labor's founders) and Jonathan West have released Time for a new consensus: fostering Australia’s comparative advantages, a paper which offers an in-depth and insightful analysis of the Australian political and economic landscape.  

They investigate the growing sense of stagnation in Australia’s approach to public policy and economic reform, and argue that the current sense of political inertia comes from the fact that the whole discussion is taking place within the parameters of a political consensus that was forged in the 1980s, and which has now passed its use-by date.
