'The world is ruled by little else': neo-liberal think tanks in the Howard era (1996-2007)

Summary

My thesis examines the ideas developed by and debates held within neo-liberal think tanks during the Howard era (1996-2007).

Why my research is important

My thesis offers an insight into the sources of the key tensions that exist within neo-liberal ideology. It also explores how free-market thought became so influential in Australian public policy circles.
