This is the first substantial book to explore what the global financial crisis means for Australia. It looks past "neoliberalism" and "economic rationalism" and asks what kind of social democracy we might hope for in the future. Are the heady days of deregulation and privatisation over? If so, where to from here? Goodbye to All That? explains the central tenets of neo-liberalism and discusses their consequences. After the GFC, how might we rethink the challenge of climate change, of care, of quality of life more generally? What is the proper role of the market? What parts of the social fabric need to be mended to create a more sustainable, fairer Australia? With a contribution from the prime minister, as well as leading writers in the field, this book is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand the financial crisis, its social implications and potential outcomes for Australia. Contributors: Kevin Rudd, Robert Manne, Jean Curthoys, John Quiggin, Michael Pusey, Anne Manne, David McKnight, Ian Lowe, Guy Pearse.
