The Future of Indigenous Australia: Is there a path beyond the free market or welfare dependency?

Altman, Jon

Description

In recent times, we have seen a growing public discourse, policy debates, and much media focus on the social problems faced by many remote Indigenous communities. Much blame is sheeted home to excessive welfare dependency. This perspective though, has limited explanatory power in accounting for the complexity of Indigenous marginalisation and disadvantage in Australia today, either in remote or more settled regions.
