There is an odd disjunction in Australian public life at the moment – we know we are doing better than 
the rest of the world economically, but this is failing to translate into a sense of well-being or ambition 
about the future.

The problem is that golden moments like this do not come around very often – if we fail to grasp this one to think and act ambitiously about the future, the moment will pass; other countries will fill the gaps and we will look back and wonder how we let it slip through our fingers.

It is time to be bold and pragmatically ambitious.

By publishing this special e-book Griffith REVIEW hopes to contribute to a lively, proactive discussion.
