What will Australia be like in 2040?
Will society be more unequal, the fair go long gone? What will drive economic growth? Will our democracy become ever more fractious, or can we revitalise it? And how should we respond to the Digital Revolution, climate change and regional instability?
Too often these questions get churned up in the spin cycle of daily politics. But they’re central to Australia’s future—and they’re urgent.
In this agenda-setting book, two young parliamentarians take the long view. They identify the dramatic changes looming on the horizon and outline creative ideas for tackling them. Fact-driven and progressive, optimistic and impassioned, Two Futures begins the debate about the decades ahead that we need to have.
