Politics in the pub - It’s the economy, stupid (or, is it?)

Kings Head Hotel
357 King William St, Adelaide SA 5000
6pm - 8pm
Sarah Hanson-Young · · (08) 8227 0425

Come along Wednesday, April 18, to the Kings Head Hotel and hear from Richard Denniss, Chief Economist at The Australia Institute and Senator Sarah Hanson-Young, as we explore some big ideas to renew Australia’s economy, un-rig the system and ensure that politics works to put people and the environment ahead of corporate profits.

The truth is the gap between rich and poor is reaching new extremes. 

The richest 1% have accumulated more wealth than the rest of the world put together.

In Australia, nearly 3 million people are living in poverty. Wage growth is slow, underemployment grows, yet big businesses are banking record profits. How did things get this bad? And how do we fix it?

This politics in the pub is a free event and everyone is welcome
