Books I’ve been reading

October 23rd, 2007

As well as Dance to the Music of Time, there’s Bob Burton’s Inside Spin a well-researched look at the operations of PR in Australia. As well as standard PR and Astroturf operations, there’s plenty of interesting material on think tanks like CIS and IPA. And I’m also reading To Firmer Ground edited by John Langmore, which provides a lot of useful policy suggestions for a social-democratic government. Sadly, the decision to match Howard’s tax cuts has closed off much of the room for manoeuvre available to Labor over the next three years, assuming they get in.

    The decision to match Howard’s tax cuts. Is that a CORE promise?

    No alternative but to match the tax cuts and Rudd will also inevitably match the seniors proposals. No point taking the high moral ground and throwing the election.

    #3 And Howard will also match the child care proposals? This could turn into a real circus.
