ABSTRACT

After Covid-19: Australia and the World Rebuild (Volume 1)   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "In the years leading up to the global Covid-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] crisis, Australia, like many countries, failed to heed health specialists' warnings on the likelihood and consequences of a global pandemic. Critical pandemic readiness was an insurance policy deemed too expensive by most nations. That decision left our nation's pandemic policies overexposed to short-sighted efficiency budget cuts. [...] This pandemic has created a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our nation to critically review and reset many of our policy assumptions. This Strategy report offers a policy-focused analysis of the world we'll face once the pandemic has passed. It analyses 26 key topics, countries and themes, ranging from Australia's domestic situation through to the global balance of power, climate and technology issues. In preparing each chapter, we asked our authors to consider four questions: [1] What impact did Covid-19 have on their research topic? [2] What will recovery mean? [3] Will there be differences in future? [4] What policy prescriptions would you recommend for the Australian Government?"
