Annabel Crabb launches newest book
09/10/2014
It's a common joke among women juggling work and family. But it's not actually a joke. Having a spouse who takes care of things at home is a Godsend on the domestic front. It's a potent economic asset on the work front. And it's an advantage enjoyed - even in our modern society - by vastly more men than women.

Working women are in an advanced, sustained, and chronically under-reported state of wife drought, and there is no sign of rain.

But why is the work-and-family debate always about women? Why don't men get the same flexibility that women do? In our fixation on the barriers that face women on the way into the workplace, do we forget about the barriers that - for men - still block the exits?
The Wife Drought is about women, men, family and work. Written in Annabel Crabb's inimitable style, it's full of candid and funny stories from the author's work in and around politics and the media, historical nuggets about the role of 'The Wife' in Australia, and intriguing research about the attitudes that pulse beneath the surface of egalitarian Australia.
Crabb's call is for a ceasefire in the gender wars. Rather than a shout of rage, The Wife Drought is the thoughtful, engaging catalyst for a conversation that's long overdue. - See more here.

 

Tim Harcourt releases latest book
08/10/2014
Is Japan running out of husbands? Is China running out of wives? Did Genghis Khan really invent free trade? And why can't you see the price of a Big Mac at McDonalds in Argentina? In Trading Places, Tim Harcourt -- also known as the Airport Economist -- takes you around the globe, talking to businesses, governments, union officials, NGOs and others in the community to understand what makes each economy tick. He reveals where the opportunities are, identifies the risks, and provides insider tips on doing business in each destination.

One of our exclusive speakers, Lateline's Emma Alberici has commented on Tim's new bestseller;

'If you ever wanted to know anything about Australia's international trade relationships but feared you'd be bored to death reading, fear no more. Trading Places perfectly demonstrates Tim's unrivalled capacity to make complex matters both easy to understand and highly entertaining.'
