Richard Denniss: Econobabble (Melb)
Join this exclusive pre-launch discussion at The Sustainable Living Festival with Richard Denniss ahead of the highly anticipated release of his latest book, Econobabble.
With trademark humour and precision, Richard Denniss demolishes the tired and misleading arguments of economic ‘experts’, exposing the deceptive dialogue, crazy contradictions and the evidence-free arguments upon which much accepted wisdom about the economy rests in Australia.
Come to be empowered to decode political spin and economic nonsense, to cut through the babble and reach the truth. Come to learn and laugh. Come to grab a signed copy of Econobabble before it hits the shelves.
Econobabble is for those who, deep down, have never believed that it makes sense, economic or otherwise, to help poor people by slashing public spending on the services they need. It’s for those who have a sneaking suspicion that it would be cheaper to avoid the effects of climate change than to let them happen and then ‘adapt’. And it’s for those who think it would be more efficient to reduce unemployment than to ship jobs offshore or blame those who are out of work.
