Ready for new occupants
Weekly roundup of links to articles, reports, podcasts and other media on current political and economic issues in public policy.
If we want aged care, child care, health care, safety, we need to pay tax at the same level as real grown-up countries.

A legislated emissions target: will the Greens do another 2008? Our green industrial future – so many options to choose from.
We need more resources and we need to use them better without burning through our nurses and doctors.
