Balancing act : Australia between recession and renewal by George Megalogenis( )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this urgent essay, George Megalogenis argues that Australia risks becoming globalisation's next and most unnecessary victim. The next shock, whenever it comes, will find us with our economic guard down, and a political system that has shredded its authority. Megalogenis outlines the challenge for Malcolm Turnbull and his government. Our tax system is unfair and we have failed to invest in infrastructure and education. Both sides of politics are clinging defensively to an old model because it tells them a reassuring story of Australian success. But that model has been exhausted by capitalism's extended crisis and the end of the mining boom. Trusting to the market has left us with gridlocked cities, growing inequality and a corporate sector that feels no obligation to pay tax. It is time to redraw the line between market and state. Balancing Act is a passionate look at the politics of change and renewal, and a bold call for active government. It took World War II to provide the energy and focus for the reconstruction that laid the foundation for modern Australia. Will it take another crisis to prompt a new reconstruction? 'Australia is in transition. Saying it is easy. The panic kicks in when we are compelled to describe what the future might look like. There is no complacent middle to aim at. We will either catch the next wave of prosperity, or finally succumb to the Great Recession.' George Megalogenis, Balancing Act
Australia's second chance : what our history tells us about our future by George Megalogenis( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Australia was the only OECD country not to have gone into recession during the GFC. Our standard of living is one of the highest in the world, and we're a multicultural mix of talented migrants from all over the world. We've been here before: at the end of the goldrush in the 1850s, Australians had the highest standard of living on earth. And we lost our nerve; we shut the doors to immigration, tried to hoard what we had and entered almost a hundred years of decline. Our second chance is now; will we use it or lose it? Crunching numbers and weaving history into a riveting, rollicking tale, George Megalogenis brilliantly chronicles the waves of immigration from the First Fleet onwards and uses his unique abilities in decoding economics and demography to advance this new insight into our history, and our future
The Australian moment by George Megalogenis( Book )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Australians are generally uncomfortable in the global spotlight - outside of sports stadiums. But after seeing us negotiate the Asian financial crisis, the tech wreck and the Global Financial Crisis that bred the Great Recession, the world is now turning to us, the 'miracle economy', for guidance. This is the page-turning story of our nation's remarkable transformation since the '70s. One of our most respected journalists, George Megalogenis, traces the key economic reforms and brilliant moments of collective instinct that opened our society to the immigration of capital, ideas and people to just the right degree. He pinpoints the events that shaped our good fortune and national character, and corrects our selective memory where history has been misunderstood or misdirected by self-interested political leadership. No one writing today is better at reading the numbers and telling the story around them than Megalogenis, and no one else has been able to coax our former prime ministers to candidly re-assess each other's contribution to the Australian Moment. Fraser, Hawke, Keating, Howard and Rudd, as well as Whitlam's confidant Graham Freudenberg, go on record for the first time about many aspects of the internal politicking, decision-making and bids for the legacy of our astonishing period of significant reform
Fault lines : race, work, and the politics of changing Australia by George Megalogenis( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Faultlines, journalist George Megalogenis explores the seemingly contradictory tendencies in the nation's political and cultural make up. How can Australia be both open and closed? Why are we pro immigration, yet unsympathetic to asylum-seekers? Why is it that the majority of workers in our globally connected economy are women, yet the senior levels of government, media, and business remain dominated by men?" "Using a wide range of data from the most recent census, and secret race polling conducted by the major political parties, Megalogenis investigates the faultlines of gender, race, and work which divide the nation - as well as issues raised by conflicts between the new economy and the old, the city and the bush, and the inner city and the rest. He identifies an emerging generation - Generation W - that is forming a 'wobbly bridge' between old and new Australia."--Jacket

Have we entered a new phase with minority government and the rise of the Greens and independents?The Hawke, Keating and Howard years were ones of bold reform; recently we have seen an era of power without purpose.

And whatever the case, how will hard decisions be taken for the future?In a brilliant analysis, Megalogenis dissects the cycle of polls, focus groups and presidential pol
The football solution : how Richmond's premiership can save Australia by George Megalogenis( Book )

3 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sport unlike any other in the world, football has always been Australia's bellwether. But at a time when politics is increasingly conducted like sports - full of one-eyed tribalism, captain's calls and policy dictated by the Newspoll scoreboard - football is the one institution that's more relevant than ever. And it's Richmond that's out in front of the pack. Before it could win the 2017 premiership, the club had to change how it thought about good leadership. By weaving together the game's conflicted history, a sharp-eyed analysis of Richmond's off-field turbulence and his own love of the Tigers, Megalogenis reveals just how Richmond found a new way to win - and how Australia might do the same

Trivial pursuit : leadership and the end of the reform era by George Megalogenis( Recording )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the aftermath of the 2010 election, George Megalogenis considers what has happened to politics in Australia. Have we entered a new phase with minority government and the rise of the Greens and independents? The Hawke, Keating and Howard years were ones of bold reform; recently we have seen an era of power without purpose. But why? Is it down to powerful lobbies, or the media, or a failure of leadership, or all of the above? And whatever the case, how will hard decisions be taken for the future? In a brilliant analysis, Megalogenis dissects the cycle of polls, focus groups and presidential politics and explores what it has done to the prospect of serious, difficult reform and the style of our leaders.

This is also an essay that looks at the fate of progressive politics after the three years of opportunities lost. In distilling the meaning of election 2010, it offers a thought-provoking guide to the challenges to come. Now that the political landscape has changed, where to next?

Our very own Brexit by Sam Roggeveen( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Could Australia have a Brexit moment? There is a rarely spoken truth at the heart of Australian politics: it is dominated by two parties that voters no longer care about. Around the democratic West, the public is drifting away from major parties, and politics is becoming hollow. In Europe, populists have been the beneficiaries. In Britain, the result was Brexit. Australian politics is hollow too. One of our deciding parties could, in desperation, exploit an issue that ties Australia to Asia and which will determine out future security: immigration
