Ross Garnaut: Reset: Restoring Australia after the Pandemic Recession

Renowned economist Ross Garnaut discusses how the COVID-19 crisis offers Australia the opportunity to reset its economy and build a successful future – and why the old approaches will not work. Garnaut develops the idea of a renewable superpower, calls for a basic income and explores what the ‘decoupling’ of China and America will mean for Australia, offering new, practical ideas for restoration. This event will be capped at 100 people, enabling a rigorous and interesting QnA session to be included as part of the event.
