Product description

Product Description

A blueprint for the nation after the boom.

Australians have just lived through a period of exceptional prosperity, but, says influential economist Ross Garnaut, the Dog Days are on their way. Are we ready for the challenges ahead?

In Dog Days, Garnaut explains how we got here, what we can expect next and the tough choices we need to make to survive the new economic conditions. Are we clever enough – and our leaders courageous enough – to change what needs to be changed and preserve a fair and prosperous Australia?

This is a book about the future by a leading adviser to government and business, someone with a proven record of seeing where the nation is going. Both forecast and analysis, it heralds a new era for Australia after the boom.

‘This book is a must-read for anyone concerned with the economic and social future of Australia. Garnaut brings to the task one of our most penetrating economic minds in an astringent analysis of the challenges facing us. He presents a wide-ranging and detailed set of policies to meet those challenges successfully. The book is lucid, compelling and unburdened by political bias.’—Bob Hawke

‘a brilliant guide to the future of the Australian economy’—Max Corden

‘the nation’s most prophetic economist’—Ross Gittins

‘Garnaut's new book … is full of good sense, subtle insight and discriminating courage from one who knows from the inside what it's like for governments facing difficult decisions.’—Tim Colebatch, the Age

Ross Garnaut AO is one of Australia’s leading economists and thinkers. He is a Distinguished Professor of Economics at the Australian National University and a Vice-Chancellor’s Fellow at the University of Melbourne. He was a key economic adviser to the reforming Hawke government. Garnaut has held senior roles in government and business, including as Australian ambassador to China and climate change adviser to the Rudd and Gillard governments.

Reading this book and I understand economics a whole lot better. Also, I have noticed that if I introduce into a conversation "Ross Garnaut says in his latest book...." people seem to listen intently.

Quite scary when all the overlapping steps are presented, and the results are highlighted. We mortals are in for a hard time, no doubt about it.
