TESTIMONIAL: A policy agenda for Australia's future prosperity by Sydney Morning Herald News Weekly
, November 3, 2001
Not too many publications go out on a limb to suggest policies, but News Weekly is an exception. Published in January, its 'Manifesto for Australia' outlines a broad range of problems caused by 'uncontrolled deregulation' during the past 20 years, including 'widespread job destruction' and downsized essential public services. Then it spells out policies to solve these problems, which include a new Commonwealth-style bank and a homemakers' allowance to help families with children.
