The past federal election campaign would be a good joke if the issues facing the country were not
so serious. These include climate change, how not to dissipate our next resource windfall, the twospeed
economy, education, asylum seekers and refugees, to name just a few. But neither party
has campaigned on any of these matters in any other than populist terms. Short term political
incentives have wholly trumped longer term policy needs. National interests have been sidelined.
