Report

Description

In his contribution to The Drawing Board's symposium on the 2002-03 federal budget, Graeme Cheeseman argues that, while most post-budget commentaries have made much of the government's political motives for focussing on border protection and the war against terrorism, less has been said about the meaning or implications of the additional financial allocations made to defence even though these highlight important weaknesses, tensions, and contradictions in policy. Indeed, he argues, our political leaders and their advisers on defence have put us into a position that is not unlike the one identified in the Intergenerational Report.
