Why are we still arguing about this? If “98 per cent” of “climate scientists” agree the climate is changing (not a hard thing to agree on, given the thesis is so vague), why can’t we just accept that trade is the key to poverty decline? Relative poverty, something which only becomes a political issue once a society heads beyond a threshold, is not as important in the third world as absolute poverty.

Former Labor Minister and Speaker of the House John Mickel and AIP Executive Director Graham Young preview the 2020 Qld election. Queensland faces the first election for a four year term in its history in just over one month’s time. John Mickel and Graham Young have spent a lifetime watching Queensland elections as well as winning (and losing) a few. They bring theoretical and practical insights to a business which is more art than science. John is presently an academic at QUT, and Graham bases much of his analysis on his online qualitative polling which has proven to be very accurate over almost 20 years. The seminar will cover the seats and candidates to watch, as well as the strategies, tactics and issues, and how they might play out.
