THE GREENS: Policies, Reality and Consequences -- Edited by Andrew McIntyre (Paperback, 150 pages)
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.
AUSTRALIAN INTELLECTUALS Their strange history & pathological tendencies -- Greg Melleuish (Paperback, 90 pages)
Why are Australian Intellectuals and academics so hostile to contemporary Australian life? Why do they so often hold disparaging views of their fellow Australians? This was not always the case. In the nineteenth century, Australians of an intellectual disposition sought to work with their fellow Australians to build a better and freer country.
Fit for Service: Meeting the demand of the Asian middle class -- Andrew Bragg (Paperback, 88 pages)
Australia’s prosperity is built upon free, open markets and creative trade policy. At a time of increasing protectionism, our North Asian trade agreements open the door to increased service exports to the region’s rapidly growing middle class. But does Australia have what it takes to capitalise on these deals? Fit For Service examines what Australia must do to succeed in exporting the know-how that is disrupting the 21st century.
Quiet achievers: The New Zealand path to reform -- Oliver Hartwich (Paperback, 90 pages)
In Quiet Achievers, Oliver Hartwich looks at New Zealand’s record on spending, tax and welfare. He discovers that while Australia has been avoiding difficult decisions, the New Zealanders have been silently forging ahead.
What Women Want: Fun, Freedom and an End to Feminism -- Ella Whelan (Paperback, 90 pages)
And now, in this brilliant book, she puts the case for female autonomy against feminist victimhood. Some feminists will no doubt cry 'anti-feminist!', but this would be inaccurate; in fact, this book is in the tradition of the Suffragettes, the female explorers, the female workforce and other female pioneers of the 20th and 21st centuries who demanded that society should mine rather than suppress women's potential. All women and men who value women's liberation should read this. -- Brendan O'Neill (from the Foreword).
Why Europe Failed -- Oliver Hartwich (Paperback, 82 pages)
“A compelling essay” -- Hon John Howard OM AC
In this essay, Dr Oliver Hartwich presents a sketch of Europe’s decline. The continent that invented and dominated the modern world has gambled away its future. Run by distant and unaccountable political elites, the EU embarked on a project of political integration for which there was never any popular appetite. At the same time, government spending across the continent increased to levels never before seen in history. To make matters worse, Europe’s population is ageing and shrinking.
Audit Commissions - reviewing the reviewers -- Kate Jones and Scott Prasser (Paperback, 80 pages)
Audit Commissions: Reviewing the Reviewers is the first comprehensive assessment of all fourteen state, territory and federal audit commissions established since 1988. That audit commissions are a particular Australian institution makes this study of value to both Australian and international audiences. The volume outlines the history, reasons for appointment, roles, processes, members, impact and suggests where audit commissions fit in the overall architecture of Australian government.
Australian Essays by Roger Scruton, With a foreword by Chris Berg (Paperback, 98 pages)
Roger Scruton explores the fallacies of our technocratic age. Roger Scruton is interested in what makes us human: our individual self-conscious, our search for the divine, our yearning for community, and our sense of place. Tackling subjects from religion, to communism, to meat-eating, Roger Scruton rejects the attempts of ideologues to reduce humanity into abstraction.
Lessons from the Global Financial Crisis: The Relevance of Adam Smith on Morality and Free Markets -- Richard M. Morgan (Paperback, 105 pages)
Adam Smith was an advocate of the free market, however his first work, The Theory of Moral Sentiments, was on ethics and was widely acclaimed at the time. Commentators have tended to review this work as separate to his work on political economy. However the global financial crisis has shown the relevance of morality and the free market. Whilst The Wealth of Nations is concerned with political economy, Smith’s pointed attacks on exploitation and greed reflect the ethics outlined in his first work.
Lessons from the Global Laboratory of Economic Experimentation -- Dan Mitchell (Paperback, 84 pages)
When seeking to educate and convince a non-ideological audience that they should favor economic freedom, I’ve learned that there’s no substitute for this kind of real-world evidence. Most people think of themselves as being practical. My daily columns are designed to reach these people. If I can reach their minds, maybe their hearts will follow. -- From the Introduction
