Praise for Reset

‘Professor Ross Garnaut is more prophet than gloomy economist, a man with the vision of a better future that our politicians have lost as they squabble over votes.’ —Ross Gittins, Sydney Morning Herald

‘If Reset has the same impact [as Superpower], and I believe it will, readers will be looking back at it for decades as the most influential Australian economic text of the coming quarter century.’ —The Age

‘Garnaut’s policy road map gives us hope that Australia can emerge from its great complacency, put its dog days behind it and enter a new era of economic and social progress in a fairer society.’ —Financial Review

‘Appeals to revive the spirit of the Hawke–Keating government under this government frankly seem like a waste of breath. But it is the fate of reformers to debate reform options in their own minds and with those they respect, and Garnaut’s book is full of them, all focused on creating an Australia with full employment – as soon as possible – rising standards of living, sustainable finances, and world-leading new industries based on renewable energy.’ —Inside Story

‘Ross Garnaut is undeterred. His new book … is a wide-ranging almanac of reform proposals to give Australia a better future’ —Inside Story

‘A new economic reform agenda is essential. Professor Ross Garnaut’s new book, Reset, provides such an agenda.’ —Craig Emerson, Australian Financial Review

‘Ross Garnaut’s new book Reset provides another valuable contribution to the debate on Australia’s post-COVID-19 future.’ —Stephen Grenville, Australian Financial Review
