Clare O'Neil MP on growth, fairness and power
In this interview
with Fatima Measham (of Eureka Street's
ChatterSquare), Labor MP Clare O'Neil discusses the persistent gap between the rich and the poor, which has left many people disillusioned about how the economy and governments function, along with the questions: What does growth mean under these circumstances and is it still useful to talk about a working class?
Clare O'Neil presented at the Economics for a Flourishing Society forum, together with Joe Zabar and John Roskam at the recent national Catholic social services conference, Hearing Healing Hope
, held in Melbourne between 21-23 February. Clare is a former mayor with a public policy pedigree, and has advised businesses in such disparate contexts as Wall Street and East Arnhem Land. In this episode, Clare is candid about her experience in politics, and what she thinks power is for.
