            Can government fix a broken economy? Two great economists disagreed eighty years ago, and their debate dominates politics to this day. As the stock-market crash of 1929 plunged the world into turmoil, two men emerged with competing claims about how to restore balance to economies... gone awry. John Maynard Keynes, the mercurial Cambridge economist, believed that government had a duty to spend when others would not. He met his opposite in a little-known Austrian economics professor, Friedrich Hayek, who considered attempts to intervene both pointless and potentially dangerous. The battle lines thus drawn, Keynesian economics would dominate for decades and coincide with an era of unprecedented prosperity, but conservative economists and political leaders would eventually embrace and execute Hayek's contrary vision. From their first face-to-face encounter to the heated disputes between their ardent disciples, Nicholas Wapshott here unearths the contemporary relevance of Keynes and Hayek, as arguments over the virtues of the free market and government intervention rage with the same ferocity as they did in the 1930s. This is no mere academic debate - with the world economy teetering, the stakes are very high for all of us.

            Dead Right: How Neoliberalism Ate Itself and What Comes Next

            Dead Right: How Neoliberalism Ate Itself and What Comes Next (Paperback)

            This updated and expanded edition of Richard Denniss?s bestselling Quarterly Essay gives a template for understanding the next federal election; discusses how and why the right of politics has continued to splinter; focuses on why energy and climate policy is such a problem for c...onservative politics; and looks in more detail at what could come after neoliberalism. How did the banks run wild for so long? Why are so many aged-care residents malnourished? And when did arms manufacturers start sponsoring the Australian War Memorial? In Dead Right, Richard Denniss explores what neoliberalism has done to Australia. For decades, we have been led to believe that the private sector does everything better, that governments can?t afford to provide the high-quality services they once did, but that security and prosperity for all are just around the corner. In fact, Australians are now less equal, millions of workers have no sick leave or paid holidays, and housing is unaffordable for many. Deregulation, privatisation and trickle-down economics have, we are told, delivered us twenty-seven years of growth ... but to what end? Denniss looks at ways to renew our democracy and discusses everything from the fragmenting Coalition to an idea of the national interest that goes beyond economics. This is a sparkling book of ideas, the perfect scene-setter for the upcoming federal election.

            The Big Handout: How US Subsidies and Corporate Welfare Corrupt the World We Live in and Wreak Havoc on Our Food Bills

            The Big Handout: How US Subsidies and Corporate Welfare Corrupt the World We Live in and Wreak Havoc on Our Food Bills (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Kostigen, Thomas M.

            Just reading the word 'subsidies' may cause many people's eyes to glaze over. We don't think it affects us directly, so we tune out. But it turns out that this complicated-sounding issue has an enormous impact on all of us. The Big Handout is about bad fiscal, environmental, agri...cultural, water, energy, health, and foreign policies. And it's a story about just one thing - subsidies. A subsidy is a grant by the government to a private business that is deemed advantageous to the public. Cotton, wheat, corn, soy, and oil are the most subsidised commodities in the United States. In this eye-opening book, New York Times best-selling author Thomas Kostigen explores government policies that cost US taxpayers $200 billion per year, or over $1,500 per household. In some cases we pay more for subsidised goods than we'd pay in a free market - and, in the most shocking abuses of the subsidy system, they pay for goods that aren't even produced. The Big Handout exposes how artificial pricing hurts US citizens and people worldwide, from our waistlines and pocketbooks to our health. By revealing just how toxic America's subsidy system has become for everyone - including the way it distorts the prices of goods produced by genuinely free-trade countries such as Australia - The Big Handout is a wake-up call for farmers, consumers, and politicians.
