Since the 1980s, waves of neoliberal ‘economic reform’ have transformed Australia. Privatisation, deregulation, marketisation and the contracting out of government services: for three decades now, there has been widespread agreement among policymakers on the desirability of these strategies. But the benefits of economic reform are increasingly being questioned. Alongside growing voter disenchantment, new voices of dissent argue that instead of efficiency and improved services, economic reform has led to unaccountable oligopolies, increased prices, reduced productivity and degradation of the public good. In Wrong Way, Australia’s leading economists and public intellectuals do a cost–benefit analysis of economic reform across key areas. Have these reforms been worthwhile for the Australian community and its economy? Have they given us a better society, as promised? ‘Has privatisation led to more productivity-enhancing competition? Has deregulation increased economic welfare in energy, finance, health, education and labour markets? Does the lived experience of Australians measure up to the promise of economic reform? The authors answer these questions with conclusions that are both compelling and disturbing.’——Emeritus professor Roy Green, University of Technology Sydney Damien Cahill & Phillip Toner on Economic Reform Stephen Duckett on Private Health Insurance Elizabeth Hill & Matt Wade on Early Childhood Education And Care Phillip Toner on Vocational Education And Training Jane Andrew & Max Baker on Prisons Bob Davidson on Aged Care Paul Davies on Public Sector Engineering Sue Olney & Wilma Gallet on Employment Services John Quiggin on Electricity Jim Stanford on Labour Markets Evan Jones on Banking Peter Phibbs & Nicole Gurran on Housing Lee Ridge on The NBN Ben Spies-Butcher & Gareth Bryant on Universities Michael Beggs on Monetary Policy And Unemployment John Quiggin on Productivity Peter Brain on Orthodox Economic Models Patricia Ranald on Free Trade David Richardson on Foreign Investment Frank Stilwell on Inequality

Statistics tell us that some of the key reasons why people do not attend church are the following: The church is filled with hypocrites. The church is only about money. The church is exclusive or like a big clique. I believe that the root of this negativity is mediocrity in the modern church. Unfortunately, the Christian church at large has become an organization where excellence is no longer prized, expected, or delivered. Let God Rub You the Wrong Way will help you examine your motives and reveal the kind of service you are giving God in return for the great salvation he has given you. Using the analogy of two pieces of carpet, the first represents the lives of Gods people at present; and the second, our lives when we first came to Christ. The author explains how God wants to rub us the wrong way in order to remove the irritants in our lives that keep us from serving him with excellence. Just like cleaning carpets, God wants to rub out those things that are not pleasing to him and rub in those things that are so that the reflection of Christ is shown in our lives.

When we got to the end of the street, we tried to think of where to go trick or treating next. “I think we should go to Cedar Street,” Carrie said. “Why Cedar Street?” I asked. “Those are small houses, not rich ones.” “Yeah,” Carrie answered. “But they are close together. We can hit more houses in less time.” I had to admit she had a point. “OK,” I agreed with her. Suddenly I saw a lane branching off from the end of the turn-around. “What’s that?” I asked. Carrie stared at it in the darkness. The lane quickly disappeared into a mass of trees. “There’s a sign,” she said. “And there’s a light on the sign,” I added. “And a pumpkin decoration beneath it!” We hurried forward. “Wrong Way Round Hall,” she read.
