Socialism and the Australian Progressive Movement with John Quiggin and Frank Bongiorno

Is it time for the progressive movement in Australia to revisit its socialist roots?

In the USA and the UK there are mass movements under the banner of socialism. Young people, in particular, are flocking to the cause.

In Australia, the ALP was founded as a democratic socialist party. Fabian socialism is the foundation of our own movement. Do we therefore need to pay close attention to this revival of interest in socialism and to consider whether we are seeing, or are likely to see, a similar phenomenon in Australia? If we did, what might be its aims and its idea of socialism, and what might be its chances of success?

Professor John Quiggin is VC Senior Research Fellow in the School of Economics at the University of Queensland. In his book, Zombie Economics (2012) Quiggin argues that

John Quiggin on Zombie Economics 11/01/2010

John Quiggin of Crooked Timber and the author of Zombie Economics talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about ideas in economics that should stay dead and buried. Quiggin argues that many economic theories such as the Great Moderation, the efficient markets hypothesis and others have been discredited by recent events and should be relegated to the graveyard. Roberts challenges some of Quiggin’s claims and wonders whether proposed alternatives might do even worse than the policies Quiggin is criticizing. Much of the conversation focuses on the role of government in the financial sector and how that might be improved going forward. https://www.econtalk.org/quiggin-on-zombie-economics/
