Example text

Some who want greater equality talk as if we should somehow do without leaders altogether. Some who want steeper inequality don’t want any hindrance at all to escalating executive plunder or other ‘tall poppy’ self-service. Both parties should be more discriminate. Twenty years ago I told an American audience that Australia ran level or ahead of the world in the quality of its best scientists, artists, writers, musicians and athletes, but that its business and government leadership had lately been declining.

As follows: New ways of doing things are not necessarily better, or necessarily worse, than old ways. We can pick up ideas and historical experience from any place or time, if they promise well for us. What matters is to understand, as perceptively as we can, the circumstances in which past ideas and institutions have served their purposes well or ill, why they did so, the conditions in which we think of using them here and now, and why they might or might not serve our present purposes in our present conditions.

As they do what they can to lead, educate and reconcile the people’s conflicting purposes, they must also do their best to arrive at policies which fit together and don’t frustrate one another. So must this book, as it suggests an economic strategy for the next phase of Australia’s history. We are comparatively peaceful, skilful, workable people. We should be able to contrive full or fairly shared employment, tolerable conditions of work, prudent environmental care, creative arts and science and social thought, interesting recreations, and the material conditions for happy childhood, single or family life, and old age.
