Our new project…

In the NY Review of Books (thanks Ben for the link), Tony Judt laments the fact that modern political life not only fails to deliver solutions to our most important problems, it fails to even consider that it could:

‘We no longer ask of a judicial ruling or a legislative act: Is it good? Is it fair? Is it just? Is it right? Will it help bring about a better society or a better world? Those used to be the political questions, even if they invited no easy answers. We must learn once again to pose them.’

That’s as good an explanation as any of the thinking behind CPD’s latest project, ‘More than Luck: Ideas Australia Needs Now’, which I’m very excited to be co-editing with Mark Davis. See http://cpd.org.au/more-than-luck for more
