Join us for our annual Fiona Baranowski lecture with esteemed economist and best selling author, Ross Garnaut.

In Reset, renowned economist Ross Garnaut shows how the COVID-19 crisis offers Australia the opportunity to reset its economy and build a successful future – and why the old approaches will not work.

Garnaut develops the idea of a renewable superpower, he calls for a basic income and he explores what the ‘decoupling’ of China and America will mean for Australia.

In the wake of COVID-19, the world has entered its deepest recession since the 1930s. Shocks of this magnitude throw history from its established course – either for good or evil. In 1942 – in the depths of war – the Australian government established a Department of Post-War Reconstruction to plan a future that not only restored existing strengths but also rebuilt the country for a new and better future. As we strive to overcome the coronavirus challenge, we need new, practical ideas to restore Australia. This book has them.

This is the ground breaking sequel to Superpower.

This lecture is held each year in memory of Geelong Regional Libraries staff member, Fiona Baranowski. Fiona, who passed away in March 2015, is remembered for her long history and valuable contribution to the library services in the Geelong Region.
