    THE GREENS: Policies, Reality and Consequences

    Edited by Andrew McIntyre

    Paperback, 150 pages, $22.95
    ISBN: 9781921421983

    The idea for this book came from an awareness of the alarming void in media analysis of the Greens’ policies at a time when they have been gaining in political strength.

    This book brings together leading Australian experts who look at a wide range of their policies in detail – from Agriculture to Z00phytes – to reveal the practical consequences of these policies.

    The book suggests that the Greens have an uncontrollable urge to spend our money, a mania for legislative and regulatory control – of both institutions and individuals – a disturbing and unwarranted confidence in central planning and a belief that government knows best. Underlying this is a thoroughly naïve understanding of how the real world works.

    The irony is that the Greens’ policies would not only destroy our economy but actually make the environment worse.
