Australia Fair argues that we should be doing whatever it takes to keep Australia fair. One of Australia's leading thinkers draws on a lifetime of research, analysis and commonsense in his blueprint for making a better Australia. Hugh Stretton argues that it is possible to contrive full and fairly shared employment for everyone, to enable most households to own or rent adequate household space and obtain the capital they need to do the things they want to do. He argues that we can continue women's progress to genuine equality at home and at work and reconcile it with parenting that elicits the best from and for our children. He shows that we can determine how best to transfer income to non-earning years. Finally, the book shows that we can fairly share the use of natural resources. Ambitious but practical, the book sets out a plan for achieving these goals. It demolishes many of our closely held assumptions while describing the kind of country most of us would want to live in.
