Inequality: the facts and the future

Inclusive Prosperity: Australia’s record and the road ahead is the major report of the Chifley Research Centre’s Inclusive Prosperity Commission. The argument of this paper is very simple: Australia faces a ‘fork in the road’ – the nation must choose its own traditions of egalitarian growth or an American-style future of rinsing inequality and concentration of wealth.

The report identifies signposts of inclusive prosperity: well paid secure jobs, high quality accessible health and education, secure retirement income and affordable housing.All these are under pressure in Australia from economic change and conservative politics – progressive leaders should stoutly resist this.
