Picture of Choosing Openness: A Lowy Institute Paper.
Leigh is the Shadow Assistant Treasurer and an ex-professor of economics. Here he argues that Australia’s past prosperity has flowed from engaging with the world. But across the developed world, global engagement such as trade, investment, and immigration are seen as threats rather than opportunities. Global uncertainty, rising inequality, and populism present real challenges to globalists, so how can we in Australia make good choices?

Description

Across the developed world, global engagement has become a major political fault line. Some say that trade, investment, and immigration are threats rather than opportunities. Global uncertainty, rising inequality, and populism present real challenges to globalists. Choosing Openness argues that Australia's past prosperity has flowed from engaging with the world. An open Australia requires stronger advocacy and smarter policies.From 1914 to 1945, the world turned inwards, as fear shut down flows of people and goods across national borders. A century later, can we make a better choice?
