The @SydneyPolicyLab believes that real change after COVID-19 will only come when people connect across difference, not when we remain hostile and separate from one another. Read about how we're trying to achieve that here:

The Levelling Up white paper has been delayed till the new year. One of its authors is Andy Haldane. Before taking on the job, this was the last major speech he gave calling for a radical devolution of power and “community capitalism”.

By regarding care as the fulfillment of a deep human desire rather than as an obligation, we can turn it into a source of value and thus something to be relished, rewarded, and respected, writes @SlaughterAM.

We started the year relieved to be leaving 2020 behind us, not realising what lay ahead. But with each new challenge we faced, leadership helped us move forward together. So, here’s to our talented people leading the way into 2022. #leadershipforgood

This is a good speech on ethnic diversity in Australian politics - which lags considerably behind the UK, Canada, New Zealand. Osmond Chiu (tweets as @redrabbleroz ) has been a consistent voice seeking to put this on the agenda of Labour and national politics.

Another terrific piece from @jamestplunkett unpicking the logic and practice of digital capitalism - and showing how public policy strategies need fundamentally rethinking in response.

Markets in the metaverse. What if the most important idea in economics no longer works? I’m told this is a great read with a coffee and a bowl of cornflakes…

Professor Allen, thank you for closing your essay with such a powerful observation: "Mortals...can repair frayed social bonds only with the speed at which trust can be grown. Politics has a physics as well, and that physics derives from the temporality of trust."

As we near the President's Democracy summit, @AspenStrategy has released essays on the future of democracy. I'm glad to have been able to share my view of "democracy in the time of coronavirus" and how we can achieve the green and healthy next-generation democracy we deserve.

CPD is saddened by the passing of Geoff Harcourt. Geoff was a giant of Australian economics with an unerring passion for social justice who was driven to understand how we can create the kind of prosperity that changes lives. Our thoughts are with his family and loved ones.

There was always going to be a moment when Boris Johnson tipped from being huge asset to enormous liability to the Conservative Party. I think we might have just reached it.
