In this episode…
Fifty years ago there was a mass transition of Indigenous Australians from work to welfare. Jobs disappeared en masse and government stepped into the breach with support. A cycle of inter-generational welfare dependency ensued, with generations of Indigenous people condemned to poverty.
In an article for the Spectator Australia, Warren Mundine has warned history may be about to repeat itself for many more Australians. Government responses to COVID-19 have seen jobs and businesses destroyed and millions of Australians reliant on government payments.
- How do we wean a nation off welfare?
- Are we too complacent about economic recovery?
- Do we have the risk settings right for COVID-19?
Hear what our Panel has to say: Warren Mundine with Joe Hildebrand, Caroline Di Russo and Steve Baxter.
