What's Government Good For?

Bendigo Writers Festival

Richard Denniss, host Julie Rudner

Defence, infrastructure, education, health and aged care, not to mention environmental safeguards and climate change mitigation. All these things require public money as well as clever thinking. Richard Denniss says the message that governments need to get out of the way has led to the shrinking of creativity and standards. He talks to Julie Rudner about why the time is right to reinvigorate the public sector. What could a bigger government do?

Tickets $20 full / $16 concession or multi-buy.
