The first in a series of conversations on why eliminating unemployment is more critical than eliminating government debt.
Forget about public debt, let’s talk about something important – public employment.
Achieving full employment with public jobs isn’t a pipe dream. In fact, it was mainstream government policy until neoliberalism, an economic system that still perseveres in Australia through successive Coalition budgets.
In this first in a series of conversations, economist Warwick Smith will cut through the government’s economic myths. He’ll explain why the economy is not like a household budget, why unemployment isn’t a natural fact of life, and why the government going into debt could actually be a good thing – and what we can do to make full employment a reality.
