About The Event
Balmain, NSW 2041 Australia
In Reset, renowned economist Ross Garnaut shows 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.
On Monday 29 March at The Royal Oak Balmain, Garnaut will be speaking on the book with ABC journalist and host of RN’s ‘The Money’ Richard Aedy.
All tickets are free – but due to limited capacity, they will be awarded to guests through a ‘lucky dip’ competition. Ticket-winners will be notified by Friday March 26.
If you do not receive confirmation that you are a ticket-winner before Friday March 26, please assume that you have been unsuccessful in securing a seat. Priority will be given to those who subscribe to our newsletter – so if you haven’t already, make sure you sign up. If you have any questions, email email@example.com.
An online version of the event will be made available later as a recording, accessible via the Roaring Stories YouTube channel.
ABOUT THE BOOK
In the wake of COVID-19, the world has entered its deepest recession since the 1930s. Shocks of this magnitude throw history from its established course – either for good or evil. In 1942 – in the depths of war – the Australian government established a Department of Post-War Reconstruction to plan a future that not only restored existing strengths but also rebuilt the country for a new and better future. As we strive to overcome the coronavirus challenge, we need new, practical ideas to restore Australia. This book has them.
