Every year, the Grattan Institute releases a summer reading list for the Prime Minister. It recommends books and articles that the Prime Minister, or any Australian interested in public debate, will find both stimulating and a great read. We’re thrilled to see that this year’s list includes ‘Time for a new consensus: Fostering Australia’s comparative advantages’, an e-book by Jonathan West and Tom Bentley from Griffith Review 51: Fixing the System. West and Bentley explore the economic, social and cultural changes in Australia over the last forty years, and suggest a new economic model for a more secure future.
The list also includes:
The Phoenix Years: Art, resistance and the making of modern China – Madeleine O’Dea
Talking to my country – Stan Grant
When and Why Nationalism Beats Globalism – Jonathan Haidt
The Life Project: The Extraordinary Story of Our Ordinary Lives – Helen Pearson
Autumn – Ali Smith
