COVER STORY Why success has eluded our automotive industry
Import regulation was needed to facilitate the growth of Australian manufacturing after Federation because Australia was, and is, a nation of high incomes. This has always meant that, aside from a few naturally favoured activities such as grazing, farming and mining, doing anything in Australia costs more than doing it elsewhere.

EDITORIAL Will survival instincts drive new industry policies?
A perfect economic storm on a scale not seen since the 1930s has been created by the covid19 economic crisis, China asserting its power across the region and problems resulting from four decades of deep globalisation.

CANBERRA OBSERVED What's China's beef with our barley?
China’s aggressive retaliation against Australia for daring to demand an independent inquiry into the source and subsequent handling of the covid19 outbreak is testing the resolve of the Australian Government.

MANUFACTURING Reversing a bad trend

PUBLIC HEALTH Inquiries needed into major covid19 outbreaks
Following the appalling decision to allow over 2,000 people to disembark from the Ruby Princess cruise ship in Sydney, leading to over 700 confirmed cases of covid19 around Australia, the NSW Government established a Special Commission of Inquiry, headed by prominent Sydney barrister Bret Walker SC, into the outbreak.

NATIONAL AFFAIRS ABS makes employment figures bend over backwards
April’s Australian Bureau of Statistics “Labour Force” unemployment figures of 6.2 per cent must be taken with a massive grain of salt. They are merely a political definition of unemployment, not an actuarial one.

NATIONAL AFFAIRS Royal commission denies Principle of fairness to Cardinal Pell
Findings by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse that Cardinal George Pell covered up allegations of child abuse in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s are totally unsupported by the evidence, and constitute an abuse of power by the Commission. They could more accurately be described as accusations.

REFLECTION Woman is ... the answer to a question
In the News Weekly of April 18, 2020, Terri Kelleher asked, “Do we really need to ask what is a woman?” I’d like to respond to that question.

ECONOMICS Breaking the shackles of deep globalisation
The experiment of globalisation, and the policies that sustain it, are pretty much stressed out. This marks the second failure of globalisation. The first, in the late 19th century, also failed.

TRADE AND INDUSTRY Alarm bell is ringing loud on China's trade threats
Alarm bells rang throughout Canberra and Australian industry in late April, when Communist China’s Ambassador to Australia, Jingye Cheng, raised the spectre of a Chinese boycott of Australian exports. More alarm bells sounded when de facto trade embargoes were launched by China against our barley and beef exports.

ASIAN AFFAIRS Taiwan an island of sanity in a sea of contagion
For years, epidemiologists have been warning that the world was overdue for an outbreak of disease that would rival Spanish Flu, which killed millions after World War I.

COVID19 LOCKDOWN Should churches be the first to reopen?
On May 3, a headline in The Australian, “Catholic bishops push Premier to open NSW churches”, raised my eyebrows in joy.

HUMOUR Troubling sino-signs at batflu press conference
Podium on cricket pitch; fluffy microphones, space, big squirty bottle of hand sanitiser, president of the Social (Distancing) Committee, Mr Patrick MacStuttles, media, bored seagulls. On the boundary, Security Boss Detective Inspector Father Bruce Rock, in full regalia, with placard “4 MORE YEARS”!

MUSIC Let's be thankful for small mercies: No Eurovision!
As covid19 ravages our streets, laying waste to centuries of civilisation and introducing many to the idea of finitude for, apparently, the very first time, it is important to be thankful for small mercies. Yes, we may be “all in this together” (I am not sure exactly what “it” is, but I am sure it must be important, what with everyone talking about it and everything).

CINEMA Onward: Recovering the everyday magic
It was a time of wonder, of adventure and heroism, of quests and great feats. It was a time long ago, a time that never really existed – or did it? Is it perhaps a time that exists in a special way, a way that can be accessed in the here and now? Pixar’s latest feature Onward is about just such a world, a fantasy world that has forgotten the magic at its core.

BOOK REVIEW KEEPING HANNAH ARENDT CURRENT AND ARENDT'S THESIS ON SAINT AUGUSTINE
With thinkers such as Margaret Canovan, Elisabeth Young-Bruehl, Susan Niemann and Jeffrey C. Isaacs, Bernstein is an important “Arendtian” authority who has responded to and developed important insights from Arendt into the main tendencies and problems of modernity. This leaves him a natural authority for writing Why Read Hannah Arendt Now?.

BOOK REVIEW SKEWED VISION OF DEMOCRACY
But only in democracy can you rid yourself of such illustrious detritus from time to time. In all the other systems they just have to be tolerated (or they get assassinated). True, the politicians being removed are usually not the most powerful actors; those are the corporate and moneyed interests behind the throne. But we should be grateful for small mercies.

POETRY
Like a name-dropping traveller through the galaxy’s night, The moon dispenses a greater luminary’s reflected light; Locked into an orbit of its colourful overlord, Linked to its master on an invisible umbilical cord.
