The imperative for progressives? Bold action on inequality, democracy and climate

July 25, 2019

“As progressives, our offer must be underpinned by a story that taps into the public mood and offers something people want and can see would improve their lives. We will never win unless we also convince the electorate we will deliver a materially better future for their families and communities. Rhetoric of scarcity only encourages mistrust and individualism. Nor will a shopping list of policies create the political space to wind back the changes that will make Australia’s tax system less progressive than at any point since the 1950s.”
