This dialogue examines the growth of inequality in Australia.
This Dialogue, recorded at Swinburne on 18 September 2014, focused on one of the ‘elephants in the room’ – the growth of inequality in Australia. Australia was, and remains, less unequal than other western nations. But since the eighties, income and asset ownership have become steadily more concentrated. Despite this, serious public discussion about the growing inequality of income and opportunity has barely begun.
