A Citizens Jury deliberation, not a “conversation”

The Treasurer is working to construct a responsible budget for Australia, and he is faced with spending expectations far beyond the capacity of revenue streams.  

As with other complex problems governments face in this country, Jim Chalmers is hamstrung by political dogma and fear of the electorate's reaction.  

He is calling for a “conversation” on the problem. What does he mean by a “conversation”? If the “conversation” is just another government-structured series of focus groups or another summit of selected community leaders, he will fail to win over a distrusting public. 

Engage public wisdom and goodwill through a citizen’s jury!
