Old man talking to himself

A perfect example of the last post is Howard’s defence of IR reform in The Age. His only winning point is that Labor has hyped up its impact, but is unconvincing on the reason why it was introduced in the first place. Interesting is the way he links it to a continuation of Labor’s reform programme of the 1980s – the difference being that Labor’s was carried out at a time of global deregulation that was exhausted by the early 1990s. The more he articulates it, the more Howard’s agenda looks like a relic from the past.
