Happy holidays from the Centre for Policy Development

2008 has been a busy year for the Centre for Policy Development, and 2009 is looking even busier, with new research and ideas on everything from public transport to health copayments in the wings.

CPD staff, fellows, volunteers and Board wish you a safe and happy holiday break and look forward to working with you to make good policy matter in 2009.
InSight magazine | Special edition on the Global Financial Crisis

As 2008 draws to a close, we asked Centre for Policy Development thinkers to look at the issue that has had more impact than any other on this year’s policy debates – the global financial crisis.

Read this special edition of InSight for plain-English analysis and a round-up of the best writing on the crisis from around the world.

JOHN QUIGGIN: The end of neo-liberalism? Implications of the financial crisis.

STEVE KEEN: Predicting the crisis – medal winning analysts

JAMES MURRAY: What to do next? Policy directions after the crisis.

IAN DUNLOP: The financial crisis – our great opportunity.
