Thank you Andrew Leunig for a fascinating and thought-provoking discussion with our members. With our nation “financialising” most things, adopting a shallow rather than complex industry mix and people buying things they often don’t need, the stage has been set for a massive shakeup. Let’s adopt a design (rather than economic) led recovery as we reject “dumb” forms of globalisation and open our eyes to opportunities such as a renewable energy grid, use of SA Super for development opportunities and even creating the best public education system on the planet.
Among the numerous ideas presented designed to stimulate debate, Andrew’s message is clear: COVID-19 has opened the way for bold thinking and we need to step up and create our own future.
Andrew has kindly passed on his presentation notes which can be downloaded here.
