Dignity and Prosperity – The Future of Liberal Australia brings together, for the first time, Australia’s leading liberal luminaries or ‘grandees’ in one place for the purpose of reigniting a renaissance of the Liberal cause.

The distinguished contributors all have extensive experience in their respective fields, and now bring their expertise, knowledge, and insight to design a policy program based around the core values of liberalism – personal autonomy and personal responsibility, free market and entrepreneurship, opportunity and security, limited government and sound fiscal and economic management. They know that a strong economy leads to strong finances, which in turn provide for strong national defence and together create the foundations for a strong civic society. This is the virtue of a successful liberal democracy.
