Book launch reception ‘Why Australia Slept’ | 14 June 2018

Join us at an exclusive reception in Melbourne to launch the book ‘Why Australia Slept’  by the Hon Dr Peter Hendy.

An economist by profession and with a PhD in Government ‘Why Australia Slept’ examines the policy challenges that confront Australia in the second decade of the 21st century and the rise and fall of the “Australian Settlement” during the period 1901-2007. The product of many years of research ‘Why Australia Slept’ also goes beyond and looks at parliamentary reform and key international relations and defence issues. 

Joining Dr Peter Hendy, to launch the book and to participate in a Q&A is the Hon Peter Costello AC, former Federal Member for Higgins and Australia’s longest serving Treasurer and Professor Judith Sloan, one of Australia’s best-known economists and Honorary Professorial Fellow at the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research at the University of Melbourne.
