Grandfathering The Australian Dream

featuring Ebony Bennett and Richard Denniss

Australia’s young people have been unfairly targeted by policies that have loaded them up with uni debts, locked them out of housing market and crippled them on the ‘flexible’ job front, and any changes that might address this imbalance are ‘grandfathered’ in so that they don’t affect anyone who is presently in a position of power, that’s what our Chief Economist Richard Denniss argues in his essay for the June edition of The Monthly – called Grandfathering the Australian Dream.
