We should celebrate and PARTICIPATE IN OUR “messy" DEMOCRACY
“Freedom House, a non-partisan organisation dedicated to promoting freedom and democracy, reports that freedom across the globe has declined for 15 straight years.""Across a swath of central Europe and central Asia in particular, a total of 18 countries suffered declines in democratic trends last year, while only six in those regions saw improvement.""Democracy is messy, but in an authoritarian system the problem is the lack of messiness. Cults of personality develop, opposing voices with potentially good ideas are squelched, healthy debates and innovative thoughts are blocked.”Gerald F. Seib  The Wall Street Journal (Reprinted The Australian - 14/7/21)

Delivering policies & procedures in the digital age
Policies and procedures are central to corporate governance. One single regulatory change could require multiple policies and procedures to be updated. Traditionally, humans with spreadsheets and word processing software have been thrown at this problem, to update documents then publish in static PDF format on an intranet.  For regulated industries, it's risky when polices are out-of-date or staff simply can’t find the right information at the right time.  1WordFlow’s technology totally transforms this process.  It easily enables you to map regulation to policy, update documents, publish as web pages and distribute on any device, anywhere, anytime, in any language.  https://1wordflow.info/

The impact of corporations on the economy and households - future impacts
McKinsey Global Institute's latest report of 38 OECD countries (inc Australia) (link below) looked at the value generated by 8 types of companies and how economic value flows to households and the broader economy, and trends in the last few decades. Globally, the patterns are quite different. Which one(s) do you think have the potential for equality, quality of life and better prosperity? There are some worrying trends for labour markets and if our education 'critical infrastructure' isn't invested in what do you think this means for Australians and globally?Image credit:https://www.mckinsey.com/business-functions/strategy-and-corporate-

Fast and Efficient Establishment Of Commonwealth Run Covid-19 Quarantine Facilities
 Political blame-shifting looks to be crowding out common sense in our management of Covid-19.Rather than seeking to build bespoke Commonwealth owned quarantine facilities – with long construction lags and inefficient resource allocation – we should consider the Commonwealth taking over (by lease or purchase) hotels & apartment hotels across the country and managing these using defence personnel. These facilities should have the air management and conditioning systems upgraded to minimise airborne virus spread and structures that allow sound isolation practices. This should give us first-rate quarantine practices across the nation and cut some of the state/commonwealth blame game.

YES AUSTRALIA - We can do it!
Let's put this to a Citizens Jury and push the political class into action:"Big business is firing up voter expectations of a $10,000 income boost through a bold action plan to break political gridlock and create a bigger, more diverse and competitive economy.In a six-tiered policy blueprint released on Wednesday, the Business Council of Australia calls for a modern tax regime, export diversification, open borders, educational excellence, reduced social disadvantage, a robust federation and a clear path to net zero emissions by 2050."Tom Dusevic, The Australian, 30/6/21
