A thread on reframing 2022. In May 2020, inspired by @MazzucatoM, @TraversMcLeod & I offered our thoughts on what a post-Covid mission for Australia could look like - given our challenging start to 2022, it’s worth revisiting.. theguardian.com/commentisfree/… #auspol #missions #care 1/7
2/7 “it would be a huge mistake for Australia to go back to where we came from. We need to reflect seriously on our national capacity before the crisis-the lack of complexity in our economy, diminishing capability across our public sector & the inequity in our communities #auspol
3/7 “We have a unique chance to rebuild our uniquely Australian society together, in a way that works for all, including our most disadvantaged, and makes us better prepared for systemic shocks” #auspol #care
4/7 “It moves to rethinking how we value #care: recognising at moment of crisis it is the teachers,nurses,carers & cleaners who are delivering the essential services to hold society together. It is about wondering why these jobs,largely performed by women, are paid less” #auspol
5/7 “It is about rediscovering the art of service delivery at local level. We are recognising that community is a centre of both production & support that can never be privatised or outsourced..Community deals will help us to grow our society & protect most vulnerable” #auspol
6/7 “Hope about the new normal that can emerge in the wake of Covid-19 is now best currency Australia has at its disposal. Agreeing on a set of Covid-19 “missions” for Australia will help us to deal with the complex & cascading human, health & economic crises now upon us” #auspol
7/7 “Whatever we decide, our collaborative response to Covid-19 should help Australia to build a bridge to a stronger society, one that allows us to solve some of our biggest problems & renew trust in democracy at the same time” #auspol #care
