Canberra residentÂ Bob Douglas has just released a little 100-page book entitled SEE-Change Centres, Grey Power and Hope. I don’t agree with all Bob’s policy recommendations, but I’m seduced by his optimism, and interested by his suggestion that one of the things we ought to do more in Australia is to provide more opportunities for cross-generational discussions.
Economists (and bloggers), do a good line in cynicism. Sometimes it’s warranted, but if you want an antidote, Bob’s book is a good place to start. And if you don’t feel like parting with $20, you can read most ofÂ it online.
