A blueprint for the nation after the boom. Australians have just lived through a period of exceptional prosperity, but, says influential economist Ross Garnaut, the Dog Days are on their way. Are we ready for the challenges ahead? In "Dog Days," Garnaut explains how we got here, what we can expect next and the tough choices we need to make to survive the new economic conditions. Are we clever enough - and our leaders courageous enough - to change what needs to be changed and preserve a fair and prosperous Australia? This is a book about the future by a leading adviser to government and business, someone with a proven record of seeing where the nation is going. Both forecast and analysis, it heralds a new era for Australia after the boom. 'a must-read for anyone concerned with the economic and social future of Australia'-Bob Hawke 'a brilliant guide to the future of the Australian economy'-Max Corden 'the nation's most prophetic economist'-Ross Gittins Ross Garnaut is one of Australia's leading economists. He is Vice-Chancellor's Fellow and Professorial Research Fellow in Economics at the University of Melbourne and Distinguished Professor of Economics at the Australian National University. He was a key economic adviser to the reforming Hawke government. Garnaut has held senior roles in government and business, including as Australian Ambassador to China and author of the Garnaut Climate Change Review.
