Peter Costello: when will he run? (page 3)
The Treasurer has been making a number of headline grabbing statements. Is this the beginning of a leadership challenge?

It seems an odd time to try. The Prime Minister looks neither ineffective nor wounded. He has delivered on much of his agenda and has come up trumps on East Timor. But all long journeys begin with the first step.


Indonesia's dangerous year (page 6)
Indonesia's tumultuous 1999 saw the election of a new President, East Timor's referendum and its aftermath, and centrifugal forces released which have begun to pull he Indonesia apart. What awaits in 2000?

French farming (page 10)
European agriculture survives because of subsidies to farmers. European taxpayers are quite happy about this. So too are European governments. The only people unhappy are free traders in countries such as Australia who prefer to beat their heads against an unbreachable wall than accept reality.

A drug free Australia (page 11)
Some State governments together with the Federal Opposition now believe that heroin injecting rooms is the way ahead. This ignores medical opinion, empirical evidence, the concerns of law enforcement bodies and common sense. There is another way.

Different abilities, different outcomes (page 14)
The misconception that unequal educational outcomes is due solely to social structures and not different levels of ability continues to hold sway in educational circles, to the detriment of students and the nation.
