- Do we need a multi-economics? Economic policy makers largely ignore the situation of disadvantaged groups
- Bertone, Santina
- In this chapter, Santina Bertone argues that economic rationalists should not be allowed to dominate economic policy making in Australia. By implication, I would advocate the involvement of a broader range of social groupings and interests in policy-making. We also need a more socially informed, humanly sensitive approach to the process, which takes into account the needs of disadvantaged sections of the population---such as migrants from a non-English-speaking background, Aborigines, and women.
