Counting the Cost

Bendigo Writers Festival

Event Date: 
11 August 2019
Author / Presenters: 
Mary Crooks, Richard Denniss, Marilyn Waring

The economics of work is neither dull nor difficult when it's taken on by writers as sharp and engaging as former NZ politician Marilyn Waring and economist commentator Richard Denniss. These two have mutual respect and a great deal in common, so when they talk about fair pay and the real cost of work, there is real energy in the way the ideas develop. Mary Crooks hosts these two informed and lucid thinkers as they discuss the economics of labour policies.
