Request for suggestions
I’m doing a book chapter on The Politics of Australian Economic Policy which needs “suggestions for further reading”, and one thing I need to suggest is a couple of good sources (preferably books, but reports or survey articles would do) giving a summary of the general case in favour of microeconomic reform in Australia and a positive evaluation of the reform experience.
I’d normally cite Productivity Commission reports, but I’d like something a bit less technical [the main audience is undergraduate political science students]. On the critical/sceptical side, I plan to suggest my own book Great Expectations and books by Michael Pusey and Fred Argy. Any other suggestions would be gratefully received.
Another question Thanks for comments and suggestions so far, which basically confirm my view that there isn’t a book of the kind I am looking for. I would also be interested in a book covering the period 1945-75 in Australia with a focus on economic policy from a political viewpoint. Perhaps I should follow the suggestion of one of my commentators and write it myself
