NOT ALL THE EXPERTS AGREE

Jenny Stewart, Professor of Public Policy in the University of New South Wales at the Australian Defence Force Academy makes some excellent points in her Australian Policy Online blog post “Hidden costs in cheaper books”.

You can read Jenny’s comprehensive and insightful piece at http://apo.org.au/commentary/hidden-costs-cheaper-books (Jenny’s article first appeared in the Canberra Times.)

In a clear and concise analysis, Jenny looks at both sides of the argument, but points out,

“Factors other than market efficiency need to be considered when we contemplate change.”

She says,

“If we want our best writers to be internationally known, we have to support their development, while they are relatively unknown, here in Australia.”

For those on both sides of the fence, Jenny’s piece is definitely worth a read.

  1. Jenny makes some excellent points – there are economists out there who can see beyond the almighty dollar – and Ross Gittens in the Sydney Morning Herald is also worth checking out on this issue.
