Miracles or mayhem? Post-election policy forum

What does a third term Coalition Government mean for Australia and our longer term trajectory?

The Coalition victory was a shock for many. Even Prime Minister Scott Morrison called the election outcome miraculous. A dominant theme of the election campaign was the economy but will Australians be better off under a Coalition Government? What about the other big policy challenges facing Australia? Can real reform be achieved?

This year's panel brings together a diverse group of experts from across the media, politics, the public sector and academia to discuss the policy promises and pitfalls of a re-elected Coalition Government and the implications for Australia's future.
