The End of Certainty

Katharine Murphy

Epidemics are mirrors. What has COVID-19 revealed about Australia, and about Scott Morrison and his government? In her gripping new Quarterly Essay, Katharine Murphy goes behind the scenes to tell the story of the response to the crisis.

Drawing on interviews with PM Morrison, Brendan Murphy, Josh Frydenberg, Sally McManus, and other players, she traces how the key health and economic decisions were taken.

Part of the Australia Institute’s #EconomicsOfAPandemic webinar series.
