Beyond populist politics and policies

23 Apr 2012
Description

What does it take to make good policy decisions in a world where attention spans are dwindling and political populism is on the rise?

The Australian Opposition is pushing for a resolution of border protection, and the rise of foreign ownership of local land has got farmers worried. Are these legitimate problems or are they distractions from the real issues of the day? A panel of politicians and academics tackles these questions on Big Ideas.
