Markets & Prosperity is a collection of 17 essays focused on the importance of leveraging markets, not government dictate, to solve Australia’s most pressing challenges. Contributors from across both sides of the political aisle, academia, journalism, and business have come together to present bold and challenging ideas to address housing affordability, energy and climate change, childcare, higher education and tax and the size of government.

In an era of higher taxes and spending and the return of industry policy, Markets & Prosperity aims to re-state the case for smaller government and sustainable economic management.

Harry Stutchbury is a Management Consultant with Kearney. He has a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Sydney and a Masters of Commerce and a Masters of Analytics from the University of New South Wales. He has previously worked as an adviser to State and Federal Liberal politicians.
