The Grapevine: Emma Dawson On What Happens Next For Australia

“The old adage is ‘never waste a crisis’. Well, I think this government does show signs of wasting this crisis.” 

The pandemonium induced by the COVID-19 pandemic has sparked debate about how to manage the economy and create a safer, more equitable society in a rapidly changing world. Emma Dawson, executive director of Per Capita think tank, joins Dylan and Kulja to talk about the people who missed out in last week’s federal budget announcement and What Happens Next?, a new book she co-edited with Professor Janet McCalm that features essays outlining alternate plans for Australia’s recovery by public thinkers and policy makers.
