Where to from Here? Australian Egalitarianism under Threat

Synopsis

Addressing the issue of Australia's waning egalitarianism, this book clarifies the underlying cultural, moral, and philosophical forces responsible for the changing face of egalitarianism and outlines an ambitious but economically and politically viable social reform agenda for the future. Discussed are issues such as why Australian egalitarianism is under threat; whether it is right to blame economists or whether cultural, social, and political forces are more important; the effects of less egalitarian policies on the overall well-being of ordinary Australians; and the options for the future.
