What is the solution to the jobs crisis? The liberal argument is for labour market flexibility - improved supply for high-skilled labour.
According to the ''left'', neo-Keynesian school, government must stimulate aggregate demand. What if we don't have to ''choose'', traditionally speaking. What if we leave the Chicago river and fresh and salt water economics behind, and try a compromise? In the old fashioned sense ..

- We realise that Mr Conroy was a very unpopular minister, and although it is hardly our concern, in this instance we must point to dysfunction within the ranks of his own party and political system
- Western scholars and officials have themselves failed to confront acts of gross interference and even aggression in sovereign territory
- Parties to the 'Nine Dash Mile' dispute have collectively failed to negotiate bona fide toward a viable solution for right of passage
- We feel it incumbent upon us to promote an open, multilateral system of cooperation and mutual respect consistent with public statements
