A generation ago, our leaders showed courage and vision in pushing for unilateral trade liberalisation – they knew it was good for Australia no matter how fast others acted. They were right to turn Australia’s economy outward, and the establishment they challenged was wrong. Today the generation that was right on trade liberalisation has much of it wrong on climate change. They now wear the establishment mantle, and it is their turn to be challenged.
