BOOK LAUNCH: 'BIG: The Role of the State in the Modern Economy'

Richard Denniss in conversation with Alex Sloan 

For decades Australians have been told that the less government spends, the better their lives will be. In his new book Big: The Role of the State in the Modern Economy Richard Denniss shows we must abandon decades of denial that the public sector can play a bigger and better role in improving our lives.
