Manning Clark House panel discussion: Advance Australia Where? (This Thursday in Canberra)

Manning Clark House will host a panel discussion on the future of this country; in 3 years, in 10 years and in 50 years.

Should we live in a decent society as started last century , then continued in the forties, seventies and eighties? Or do we gurgle trickling down?

The title is “Advance Australia Where?”.

The discussion will be umpired by Genevieve Jacobs and will include:
